Senior pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar has heaped praises on young pacer Arshdeep Singh stating that he has been left surprised by the maturity of the left-arm fast bowler. Bhuvneshwar also praised Arshdeep’s death bowling ability which has given him a chance to play in the national team.

Playing for the Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the Indian Premier League (IPL), the left-arm pacer has proved his mettle during the death overs as he showed the ability to nail the yorkers towards the end. The 23-year-old will definitely be looking to get on a flight for Australia to represent the Men in Blue in the upcoming 2022 T20 World Cup.

The left-arm pacer made his debut against England last month and immediately impressed everyone with his bowling performance. Despite not getting a chance during the 50-over series against West Indies, the left-arm pacer returned with 2/24 in his four-over quota during the first T20I fixture against the Men in Maroon.

Arshdeep Singh has performed consistently in the IPL for the last couple of years: Bhuvneshwar

“The best thing about him is that he knows exactly what is required. What kind of field setting is needed, how to bowl to each batsman – very few newcomers display that kind of maturity,” Bhuvneshwar was quoted as saying by India Today.

“Usually you learn these things as you play but he seems to have arrived with that kind of maturity. Even in the IPL in the last couple of years, he has performed consistently. He knows exactly what he wants to do, he thinks a lot about his game,” he added.

Arshdeep is also expected to feature in the Indian line-up for the second T20I to be played on August 1 (Monday). Team India won the first T20I encounter easily and they will want to continue their good performance during the second match as well. West Indies on the other hand will want to win perform strongly in the second match and register a win.
