Arshdeep Singh has had outstanding performances with the ball in hand for the Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the 2nd leg of the IPL 2021. Singh has bagged nine wickets, In the four matches, he has featured in the UAE leg.
According to former Indian batting legend Virender Sehwag, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) must ensure that the left-arm bowler is properly cared for so that his potential might not go to waste.
Arshdeep learned to swing the ball in just 3-days from Zaheer Khan: Sehwag
Highlighting that Arshdeep had trained with Zaheer Khan and learned to swing the ball with just three days, the ‘Nawab of Najafgarh’ claimed that Singh can help any team he plays for with the ball in hand.
“That’s a typical bowling from a left-arm fast bowler that comes in after pitching away from the off stump. He [Arshdeep] said he worked with Zaheer Khan for three days. If he can swing the ball in within three days, imagine the benefits he can provide to the Indian team if he spends some time with them. If such a player is not in the team, then the BCCI must look after him and make sure his talent doesn’t get wasted,” said Virender Sehwag.
Arshdeep Singh was also described as a great bowler by Virender Sehwag, who finished by saying that if the left-arm bowler keeps working hard on his skill, he may be capable of representing the Indian cricket team on the worldwide platform.
“Arshdeep is a very fine bowler and if he continues to work hard and perform like this, he would surely make it to Team India someday,” concluded Virender Sehwag.
Virender Sehwag represented India in 104 Tests, 251 ODIs, and 19 T20Is. The right-hander scored 8586 runs in whites, whereas he scored 8273 runs in one-day internationals. The 42-year-old made 394 runs in T20I cricket. Sehwag has also appeared in 104 IPL matches, scoring 2728 runs at a batting average of 155.44.
