Arshdeep Singh

Arshdeep Singh, the left arm fast bowler is playing in the County Championship in England.

Arshdeep Singh did not make it to the West Indies tour

“Sometimes maybe being left out of the team is also great incentive to try and pick up heaps of wickets. Maybe that is what Arshdeep Singh needs to do. He needs to pick 5-fors continuously and then he will be automatically picked for the team,”. Gavaskar told Sports Today.

Sunil Gavaskar further praised him by saying that

He is the future in all formats. He has already started to do a little bit well in England in county cricket. Just like Jaspreet Bumrah came on as a T20 bowler and went on to spearhead the Indian bowling attack. Arshdeep Singh is somebody who can play all formats of the game and you need to encourage him to do that,” said the 73-year-old .
