Monday's ICC men's T20 World Cup warm-up match between Afghanistan vs South Africa in Dubai on Monday will see two classy spinners in action. While Rashid Khan will lead Afghanistan's attack, a lot of focus will be on South Africa's Tabraiz Shamsi. When it comes to the best spinner at the ICC Men's T20 World Cup, it's hard to look past Tabraiz Shamsi. The South African is ranked No.1 in the ICC Men’s T20 International Player Rankings for a reason and as a left-armer, he poses a significant challenge for batsmen. Left-arm wrist spinners are rare in international cricket and Shamsi is very consistent, can turn the ball both ways and has tremendous control. Shamsi should be an asset for South African skipper Temba Bavuma. Rashid Khan is fresh from the Indian Premier League and although his franchise finished at the bottom of the league table, leg-spinner Khan was effective as always. Afghanistan and South Africa are in different groups in the main competition. While Afghanistan start on October 25, the South Africans play Australia in their first game on October 23.
