Afghanistan all-rounder Mohammed Nabi's spin bowling may pass off as benign to most, but he has mastered the art of containing batsmen in the slam-bang format. Bringing the third over of the innings for London Spirit, Nabi took the dangerous Chris Lynn out of the equation as he charged at the ball only to be conned by the wide length and stumped for 14.

The slower trajectory of the regulation off-break and an uncanny ability to gauge the batsman's movements and accordingly adjust his length paved the way for Nabi's success.
