The rise of Arshdeep Singh in international cricket has been quite exemplary. In the short international, he has shown that he is a quick learner. Arshdeep grabbed a 4-wicket haul in the third T20 against New Zealand. The left-arm seamer ended with figures of 4/37 in his four overs.
In the post-match interview, he told Mohammad Siraj that he is learning to bowl hard lengths from Siraj. He also told Siraj that he is learning knuckleball from Bhuvaneshwar Kumar.
“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”,
Arshdeep told Siraj.
“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,”
Arshdeep said during the interview for BCCI.tv
“I even had a thought that I can take a hat trick or a five-wicket haul. But you did make a run-out and gave a team hat trick. The seniors advised me to bowl length and slower balls to deceive the opponent,”
“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,”
the pacer concluded.
Arshdeep was the standout bowler for India in the T20 World Cup. He picked up 10 wickets in the tournament. He has taken 33 wickets in 21 matches since making his T20I debut against England in July of this year, averaging 18.12 and bowling at an economy rate of 8.17.
