Be it 2008 or 2024, the role of spinners in the Indian Premier League was and will always be a crucial one. While bowling in powerplay and death overs is an art for a fast bowler, taking wickets in the middle phase of the match is an art of the spin bowlers. Needless to say, they are one of the most important types of bowlers in every team.

The year 2024 will see as many as 62 spinners Participating in the tournament, which is roughly 6 spinners per team. While CSK and MI have the maximum number of spinners in a team at 8, RR and Delhi Capitals have the least number of spinners in a team at 5. But how about the quality of spinners in each team?
