Arshdeep Singh wants to be effective both with the new and old ball

Arshdeep Singh

India’s young pacer Arshdeep Singh has become a complete fit in the T20 World Cup squad.

He has successfully become a left-arm pacer in place of Jasprit Bumrah who can be effective both with the new ball as well as in the death.

For a long time now, India have been searching for such a bowler and Arshdeep has finally given them a solution.

The young pacer in an interview with former India pacer, Irfan Pathan said that he wants to become better with both the old and the new ball for India.

Says Arshdeep,

My focus was always on consistency. You cannot afford to give too many loose balls at the international level. I want to be good while bowling with the new ball and with the old ball. I want to pick wickets or control runs as per the need.

Arshdeep’s best asset is that he doesn’t get flustered even during pressure situations. He remains calm and has thrown some of the best yorkers in the death overs to win games for India.

The young pacer was first found out playing for his IPL franchise- Punjab Kings. In the IPL as well, Arshdeep impressed one and all with his skill with the new ball.

But, during that time he was not a death-overs specialist. So, now he has become one in place of Jasprit Bumrah.

Arshdeep continues to see a quick rise in the squad due to his ability with both the new and the old ball.

He also talked about his ability to adapt well to the conditions in Australia.

Entire team prepared well for the World Cup. We reached Perth around one week before and worked on our lengths because everyone had different lengths. So while practicing we were able to figure out the lengths with bounce. I guess with good preparation we get good results.

Arshdeep also gave huge credit to bowling coach Paras Mhambrey who helped him improve his line and length.
