    Indian pacer Arshdeep Singh commented on his partnership with Umran Malik


    Arshdeep Singh and Umran Malik have emerged as two of team India’s most promising players after receiving calls from the national team after having successful IPL seasons. According to Arshdeep, his collaboration with Umran has been quite beneficial. Umran played in the ongoing ODI series against New Zealand after making his India debut during a three-match T20I series in Ireland in June. Arshdeep, meanwhile, has distinguished himself in the just-completed T20 World Cup 2022 after rising quickly for the Men in Blue.

    “Things are quite enjoyable with Umran around. Like me, he also likes to crack jokes. As far as bowling is concerned, I get a lot of benefits (when he’s bowling at the other end) as batters get deceived playing 135 km/h after his 155 km/h deliveries. We enjoy a lot both on and off the field. We will try to keep this partnership going even off the field,” Arshdeep said in a press conference ahead of the third and final ODI match against New Zealand.

    Arshdeep can get movement with the ball and keeps a decent line and length while Umran relies on sheer speed. The left-arm pacer added that one must be patient in a 50-over match and that partnerships are important in both batting and bowling. “ODI is a long game, partnerships play a key role, just like in batting, in bowling also partnership is important. I check how my partner at the other end is bowling on the other end. If he’s bowling well, getting more out of the surface then I will try and stop the runs to help him out. At the end of the day, it’s a team sport. If I am attacking, my partner at the other end will go on the defensive,” opined Arshdeep.
