Jonty Rhodes on Arshdeep Singh
“I think that’s putting him under a lot of pressure, to compare him to the great Wasim Akram, the sultan of swing. Arshdeep has certainly grown in the last two years and that’s been the case with the Indian fast bowlers. You look at a Bumrah and his progression was so so quick and Arshdeep has done the same, he is a young fast bowler, willing to learn and listen and he puts in the hard yards. He does swing the ball and has been a revelation at the death. He’s great in the powerplay, has got good control and he can come around the wicket like Wasim Akram effectively. He’s someone who has great potential and possibility of having a fantastic career. But you start to compare players to the ones who played before them, that puts them under unnecessary pressure. He wants to be the best Arshdeep Singh.”
Arshdeep is an impressive swing bowler. He is a good powerplay bowler and took a good number of wickets in the powerplay. His growth is seen similarly to Bumrah who rose to glory at a young age like Bumrah. He consists of good caliber and also has a good career in the future. But he should be away from all pressure and views of outside people and the news. Comparison is a thing that one should avoid at this stage. New players like Umran Malik are also coming up with new effective bowling assets.
