dc.description.abstractThe aim of this study was to develop the understanding of spin bowlers performances in T20 cricket for different locations. 35 T20 games were accumulated from two separate T20 World Cups held in Bangladesh and the West Indies. A Mann-Whitney U test was conducted on the data to find significant differences between variables for locations. The test revealed very few significant differences between variables, but a full length (p = 0.018) and fours conceded (p = 0.003) were found to be significant (p < 0.05). Although a full length was found to be significant, it was the least effective length in terms of taking wickets. In addition, there was minimal difference found between the percentage of full and good length deliveries bowled across both locations. Percentage of runs conceded in boundaries was found to be of higher percentage per game in Bangladesh (9.1%) than in the West Indies (5.7%). Which contradicted previous research. Moreover, economy rate and strike rate differed minimally in both locations. But surprising, right arm leg spin bowlers were found to be the most economical bowlers. On the whole, these findings indicate that spin bowlers should aim to bowl a good length to take wickets and restrict runs, and effects on spin bowlers performances in different location are minimal.en_US
