hello cricket fans... Do u notice one thing the Spinner Bowler are more effective then Pacer Bowler..They are brutally have been bitten by Batsman but batsmen find difficulty to play spin bowl..as we see in the highest wicket taker tally..there is no name of Fast Bowler in top 5..and many team has started their bowling spell with spin bowl..only What u think Fast Bowler has no use in T20...?

In T20 type matches all bowlers like fast,medium fast and spinners will be punished heavily. There is an imbalanced rule between batsman and bowlers in T20 matches pattern

Hope you have a perfect Knowledge about Indian Pitches. Most of the Indian pitches are Spin tracks. Inspite of this, bowlers like Bollenge are performing good. And T20 is all about hitting hard within the minimum ball. The average Run rate in T20 is around 8. In Fast Bowling, its the way how the Pace of the ball bowled at above 100kmph is utilised. Batsman need not put extra efforts to send the ball to a boundary as compared to Spin bowling... Its illogical to say that Fast Bowlers are useless:) Hope you agree

as you said almost all the teams are trying spinners in opening overs. its mainly to take wickect ans thus they can dominate the game from the bigining . indian pitches supports spinners more than pacers. most pitches are turning. but dont forget some bowlers like malinga,steyn,etc.

Yap! Malinga..Steyn quite fantastically bowl..in this IPL..but even if we compare the performance of spin bowler and faster bowler...The spinners has done terrific job..as we seen in yesterday match..CSK played with 3 spin bowlers..and which is really worked..and able to defeat KKR miserably...

No, fast bowlers can bowl well in T20..we can't decide in this IPL alone..last time RP singh did well now bollinger also performing well..It depends on pitch..If you see Indian tracks it has been made like that..it suits mostly for spinners..In this season Dirk nannes also bowling well..so it is very bad to say fast bowlers are useless in T20..this is my opinion..

Ya in Indian conditions spinners always play an important role in deciding the fate of match.. but still Pacers with steady pace and variations like Malinga and Nannes can be equally effective. Most Indian batsman can hit even the best quality spinners out of the park in spinning conditions as well. Quality fast bowlers will still be better option for players like Yousuf Pathan, who can constantly go on hitting spinners doesn't matter conditions suits spinners or not. And when comes to international cricket Pacers will always be the key bowlers whether it is t20, ODI or Test. Fast bowlers will always be the key to success be it any form of game.. and they are not useless.

I think.. no... it is wrong to say that fast bowler are useless in t20.. because sometimes fast bowlers get success to take wicket and sometimes batsman.. although in this game mostly chance for both.. if you are a good bowler and always get ball on good line and length. then you may get success to get wicket..
