Spinners doing well in T20s: Murali Kartik

Veteran India discard Murali Kartik said spinners have come of age and are playing a great role in teams' victories in the Twenty20 format of the game. ‘The first time I played T20 cricket, I went for 39 runs in four overs, against Surrey. Then I thought this is not the game for spinners. But now spinners are playing a massive role in defending scores of around 140-145. The economy rate of spinners I believe is becoming better,’ Kartik  told reporters on Thursday.

The slow left arm orthodox bowler said he always believed to do his own things in a very different way unlike other bowlers sending in ‘doosaras’ and ‘teesaras’. ‘Look, I bowl six different deliveries and the batsman hits it to six in different parts. That is all I can say. Pehla, doosra, teesra, chautha, paanchavaan, chhatha -- I have never been the one who has gone and tried these things,’ said Kartik, who is a part of Royal Challengers Bangalore side.

On the balance of RCB, Kartik said, ‘It is about the eleven who are going to come out into the park. Lots of young exciting Indian talents are out there. Everyone knows about the overseas players we have got.’
