Everything is not going well these days for India’s young fast bowler Arshdeep Singh. He is not able to help the team with his bowling. India has definitely had to face difficulties due to his continuous no-ball throwing. Earlier this month, he bowled several no-balls in the T20 match against Sri Lanka. At the same time, in the T20 match against New Zealand on Friday, his leg again went out of line.
Former India batting coach Sanjay Bangar wasn’t too impressed with Arshdeep during the 1st T20I against New Zealand. The left-arm pacer went too expensive due to which India had to suffer a big loss in the first match.
“Arshdeep wasn’t much effective today. He has been known for those wide yorkers that trouble the batters but today, he bowled mostly in the slot. I think he needs to think about his bowling a bit and make decisions wisely. It’s a journey. You may have a good start but there will be games where your skillsets will be tested. It depends upon you how much you believe in yourself and work on the basics. If he works on these factors, he might come out as a better batter,” Bangar said in a discussion on Star Sports.
He’s also wasting energy there: Mohammad Kaif
Arshdeep came in the last over of New Zealand and bowled a no-ball in the very first delivery of the over. In that over he gave away 27 runs. This was the reason that the Kiwi team was able to score 176 runs after losing six wickets.
Arshdeep took only one wicket for 51 runs in his four-over spell. Former Team India all-rounder Mohammad Kaif talked about the biggest shortcoming of Arshdeep’s bowling due to which this young bowler is making so many mistakes.
“Arshdeep has a longer run-up which itself means he might face stepping issues. He’s also wasting energy there. So, the main reason behind those over-stepped no-balls is his long run-up. And as he changes side too much, sometimes round the wicket, sometimes over. So, he needs to work on the basics and stay a bit relaxed. He is a good bowler but didn’t have a great day,” Kaif said.
