T20 is just not cricket!
Interestingly, most bowlers who took a beating in T20 death overs are pacers. Spinners sometimes went for runs, but generally not those 20+-run overs. If I remember correctly, spinners never used to bowl at death when ODIs started. However, the value of spin bowling in keeping RR down was discovered in the '80s. As our best run checkers are spinners, my preference is to use them. They might get hit some time, but not as frequently or as much.
