In T20 having 2-3 pace bowlers might be useful. The problem is our spinners dont have anything unorthodox in their bowling. They are very predictable. All you need to do is just come some room and slog with all your power like McCullum did in WT20 and Samuels did yesterday. If our spinners did have some mystery element to their bowling or if they could pitch it up at pace like Gayle/Samuels was doing then its a different story.

But it ODI's its pointless having pacers even if there is grass and bounce in the wicket. Not because our spinners are so great, but because we lack quality in our pace bowling. Question becomes do i play Shafiul or Rubel who i know will neither give me 10 overs or add anything to the batting or play Sunny who will surely give me 8-10 overs conceding not more than 45-50 runs.
