MIRPUR, Bangladesh: India has surprised at the World Twenty20 not only by its success but in that its being led by its spinners.
India came to Bangladesh with little recent success in one-day internationals and having played only one T20 since December 2012.
Yet, only it and Sri Lanka are unbeaten after winning their first two games, and India's spinners have been match-winners.
Legspinner Amit Mishra grabbed 2-22 against Pakistan and 2-18 against the West Indies to take both man-of-the-match awards.
The track at Sher-e-Bangla Stadium has helped spin, and since the venue will host all the knockout matches, captains have a lot of strategizing to do in the coming days.
