Aakash Chopra backs Arshdeep Singh and wants him to improve

Arshdeep Singh

India’s pacer, Arshdeep Singh has been struggling with his no-ball issues and has to improve upon it.

Which is why former India cricketer, Aakash Chopra has stated that Arshdeep needs to improve his performance.

Chopra has pointed out that this is a recurring problem for Arshdeep and that he needs to get out of this fix.

It was a slight anomaly in the last match, we don’t bowl so many no-balls. It is true that Arshdeep has bowled the most no-balls in the last 12 months. So, it’s a recurring problem, a problem that has come before him repeatedly and troubled him slightly, but I would still by him to rectify it.

On the other hand, Chopra feels that Arshdeep has the power to improve upon this aspect of his game and he is confident that he will.

It happens at times, you come out of the cold and then you are not well, and then suddenly you play and your foot does not fall at the right place, the confidence is gone and things go bad. So I would want an improvement there and it will happen, I am not worried.

Aakash Chopra all praises for Sri Lanka’s approach toward India

Moreover, Chopra has lauded the way Sri Lanka has gone all-out in their batting approach toward India and is not afraid to take risks.

Sri Lanka have impressed me because they have gone hammer and tongs. They are not looking back and saying that they will play cautiously, that they are not the best team and have lost 11 matches. They are saying they will attack and have come here with a purpose that everyone will hit.

Additionally, Chopra has also stated that the pitch at Rajkot will be more suitable for the visiting team.

They are trying their best to maintain the pressure. This pitch will suit them as well. It will suit their bowling because Wanindu Hasaranga and Maheesh Theekshana bowl well and you can expect bowling from Dhananjaya de Silva.

The third T20I between India and Sri Lanka is on at Rajkot at the moment. Pandya will look to maintain his unbeaten streak at home.
