Indian young left-arm pacer, Arshdeep Singh, is constantly performing well in the shortest format. In the final match of the T20I series against New Zealand at McLean Park in Napier, Arshdeep picked his career-best figures in T20I cricket by taking 4 wickets while conceding 37 runs in four overs.
Another Indian pacer Mohammed Siraj was also the star performer for India with the ball. He picked up 4 wickets while conceding only 17 runs in his four-over quota. He won the Player of the Match award for his outstanding performance. Meanwhile, the Indian batters were having a hard run as they lost early wickets. Hardik Pandya and Deepak Hooda were in the middle while chasing before the rain interrupted and the match was called off which resulted in India winning the series by 1-0.
I am learning from the senior players: Arshdeep Singh
India have found a promising left-arm pacer after a long time after Zaheer Khan in the face of Arshdeep Singh. The 23-year-old stepped up in the 20-20 World Cup 2022 and picked 10 wickets. During the recent series against the kiwis, Arshdeep showed how well he can execute a knuckleball and he credited the senior pacers for helping him to add more varieties to his bowling skills.
“It’s all from the guidance from the experienced players in the team. I constantly try to learn from them. I try to learn hard-length deliveries from you (Siraj). I am learning knuckleball from Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar Kumar) bhai.” said Arshdeep in a chat with Mohammed Siraj in a video posted by the Indian Cricket Board.
“Earlier I learned how to use yorkers from (Mohammed) Shami bhai. I try to improve myself and hope to step up and perform well when the team requires you to stop runs or get a wicket,” he said.
“I am learning and will try to implement it in the future. All is well that ends well. The team has got a series win and I am happy to witness your bowling and will try to do well in the future,” he concluded.
