IND vs SL: ‘Arshdeep Singh has lost his rhythm’, Saba Karim’s question, why didn’t he play domestic cricket
Talking to a private channel, he said that Arshdeep Singh’s no-ball problem forced captain Hardik Pandya to reduce his usage in the match. Along with this, he also questioned the management’s decision to give Arshdeep Singh a long break after the T20 World Cup.
Former India selector Saba Karim has slammed young Indian pacer Arshdeep Singh for bowling five no balls in the second T20I against Sri Lanka. Along with this, he has also questioned the bowling technique of Arshdeep Singh. In fact, Arshdeep Singh bowled 5 no balls in the second T20 match against Sri Lanka. After this, he is constantly being criticized. Talking to a private channel, he said that Arshdeep Singh’s no-ball problem forced captain Hardik Pandya to reduce his usage in the match. Along with this, he also questioned the management’s decision to give Arshdeep Singh a long break after the T20 World Cup.
Said that bowlers like Arshdeep Singh need regular games to maintain their rhythm. Along with this, he said that Arshdeep did not even play domestic cricket during this period. However, he also said that new players will make mistakes and that is how they will learn. He added that it also depends on the bowling coach Paras Mhambrey how he develops Arshdeep Singh. This usually happens when you lose your rhythm. He said that Arshdeep needs to get back to basics so that he can regain his lost rhythm. He clearly questioned why Arshdeep Singh is not playing domestic cricket in between international matches? Why didn’t he play Vijay Hazare for Punjab?
Saba Karim said that Arshdeep needs to find his rhythm in the run up. It is understandable if it happens occasionally. But in a T20 match, you cannot bowl 6-7 no balls. Arshdeep bowled just two overs against Sri Lanka in which he conceded 37 runs. Indian pacers and top-order batsmen will need to bounce back from their previous defeat to beat Sri Lanka in the decisive third T20I on Saturday. After winning the last ball in the first match, the Indian team lost by 16 runs in the second match. A poor display from young pacers was the main reason for the defeat but Umran Malik and Shivam Mavi know they have a lot to learn from this.
