Arshdeep Singh took 2 wickets against South Africa
Arshdeep has bowled well with the new ball in all three matches so far.
New Delhi. India has not yet missed Jasprit Bumrah’s absence in the T20 World Cup 2022. Left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh has done well so far as Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s partner with the new ball in his place. He bowled brilliantly with the new ball first against Pakistan, then the Netherlands and now against South Africa. Arshdeep has credited his success to Bhuvneshwar.
Talking to reporters after the match against South Africa, Arshdeep said, ‘We study the weaknesses of the batsmen. Me and Bhuvi bhai try to beat the batsman with swing in the opening over. The reason I am able to take an aggressive approach against the batsmen is because Bhuvi bhai bowls economical from the other end. This increases the pressure on the batsman even more.
The credit for my success goes to Bhuvi bhai: Arshdeep
This left-arm fast bowler further said, ‘The credit of my success goes to Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Batsmen shy away from hitting big shots against him (Bhuvneshwar) and try to do the same against me. That’s how I get wickets. We had a good partnership. Bowling partnership is as important as batting.
‘Getting a wicket with the new ball builds confidence’
In the T20 World Cup, Arshdeep Singh has so far taken 7 wickets at an economy rate of 7.83. At the same time, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has also taken 3 wickets at an economy rate of 4.87.
The 23-year-old pacer said that the wicket of Optus Stadium in Perth is a dream pitch for any fast bowler. He said, ‘When you get wickets with the new ball, your confidence increases and your confidence in your abilities as a bowler increases. It was a great wicket for fast bowling. Of all the wickets I have bowled in my career, this was the best for fast bowling.
