3. Imran Tahir (South Africa):
The South African leggie, Imran Tahir emerged as the best spinner in limited overs format, this year. Tahir has been used as an attacking weapon by the South African skipper and whenever the team is struggling to take wickets, Tahir comes and weaves his magic. Though for a leg-spinner it’s always a difficult task to maintain accuracy but it seems Tahir has found his feet in ODI cricket. Without leaking runs, the Pakistan born spinner has mastered the art of variations. In the World Cup, the 36-year-old was the captain’s go-to bowler and he scalped 15 wickets in the mega event. The leggie was South Africa’s most economical bowler in the World Cup Semi-Final which is a testimony of his temperament in high pressure matches. In 2015, he took 37 wickets in 22 matches at a brilliant economy of 4.68.
