Arshdeep Singh has impressed everyone with his performances against England and West Indies. The left-arm pacer produced a match-winning spell of 4-24-2 in the first T20I against West Indies. Since then, the young pacer has been the talk of the town. Virat Kohli’s childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma has praised the youngster for the same.
He said to India News that the youngster has been performing well. Sharma added that the youngster’s build-up looks very similar to that of Wasim Akram. He added that the youngster looks promising and will represent India in more matches.
“It seems like Arshdeep Singh has followed Wasim Akram very closely as he holds the ball in his right hand while running to hide it from the batter. It’s good to see that he’s a thinking cricketer,” Rajkumar Sharma told India News.
Former India player Reetinder Sodhi had also backed the youngster. He heaped praise that the youngster had been working hard in the nets and he will reap the benefits someday. Sharma added that youngster was more than ready for the international arena. He added that the youngster’s ability to bowl yorker was exceptional.
“He is still very young and has to learn a lot of things. But he is a very promising and a very intelligent cricketer. Arshdeep has performed well whenever he’s been given the opportunity. While he wasn’t a part of the playing XI for the last few games, it seemed like he had been working very hard in the nets. It’s never easy to bowl the yorker, especially in T20 cricket. He is definitely ready for international cricket,” Sodhi said.
Arshdeep Singh will look to make his opportunities count. He has age under his belt and exceptional skills to become a permanent bowler. India lacks a left-arm pacer for a long time now. The last left-arm bowler to represent India was Khaleel Ahmed. And it will be a great fortune for India to get the services of Arshdeep Singh.
