Bangalore: Veteran India discard Murali Kartik on Thursday said that spinners have come of age and are playing a great role in teams' victories in the Twenty20 format of the game.
"The first time I played T20 cricket, I went for 39 runs in four overs, against Surrey. Then I thought this is not the game for spinners. But now spinners are playing a massive role in defending scores of around 140-145," said Kartik.
"The economy rate of spinners I believe is becoming better," he told reporters here.
