The left-arm fast-medium bowler from Madhya Pradesh, Arshdeep Singh has been impressive with the ball. The seamer had hogged all the limelight with his performance in the Punjab U23 team in CK Nayudu Trophy. He had surprised everyone with his pace and control with the new ball and had taken 8 wickets including a hat-trick against Rajasthan.
The 21-year-old hasn’t featured in many games in the domestic circuit. He made his debut in domestic cricket in 2019 and has featured in only 3 first-class matches and 10 List A fixtures taking 9 and 11 wickets respectively. However, he was picked by Kings XI Punjab for IPL 2019 and had named the wickets of Jos Buttler and Ajinkya Rahane in his maiden IPL outing against Rajasthan.
In IPL 2020, Arshdeep impressed who’s who of the cricket fraternity by 9 wickets in 8 games for KXIP at an economy rate of 8.77 an average of 24.22. His perfect execution of yorkers and wicket-taking ability ensures that the young rookie has a promising career.
