Arshdeep Singh’s reputation has grown since he made his Indian Premier League debut in 2019. The bowler made his international debut during the tour of England after a stellar IPL 2022 season. During the West Indies trip, he then claimed seven wickets. He participated in the Asia Cup for India last month, but his performance wasn’t great. But earlier this week, in the first T20I against South Africa, the young bowler made a strong recovery. In his first over, Arshdeep, who was sidelined for the T20I series against Australia, struck three times.
When facing Arshdeep, who finished the game with figures of three for 32 on a pitch that was swinging, the Proteas batsmen appeared to be completely lost. Former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal compared Arshdeep’s performance to that of a legendary Indian left-arm pacer. “The bowler Arshdeep Singh is outstanding. I believe that India has discovered its new Zaheer Khan “In a video posted to his YouTube page, Akmal remarked. “Arshdeep has both, pace and swing, and he has that bowling intelligence. He’s mentally strong and knows his abilities, and uses them according to the conditions,” he explained.
Despite his youth, Arshdeep possesses bowling knowledge and maturity, which is encouraging for the Indian squad, said Akmal. “He first got Rilee Rossouw caught-behind, and then castled De Kock. But the best wicket was that of David Miller because he kept getting the ball to move away from him before bowling a sharp inswinger to bowl him out. He bowls brilliant and he is mature, has pace and is still young. It’s a good sign for Team India because they needed a left-armer after Zaheer Khan,” he added. Arshdeep has been chosen for the 15-man team for the T20 World Cup in Australia, which is notable.
