Former Delhi Daredevils (now Capitals) skipper Virender Sehwag lavished praise on Punjab Kings left-arm pace bowler Arshdeep Singh. The 23-year-old has been impressive with his ability to block runs in the slog overs.

In the match against Gujarat Titans, Arshdeep conceded just five runs in the 18th over, however, Punjab lost the game as Rahul Tewatia pulled a rabbit out of a hat. As Gujarat needed 12 runs off two balls, Tewatia clobbered West Indies all-rounder Odean Smith for two sixes to finish the game for his team.

Arshdeep replicated his excellence against Mumbai Indians, the seamer gave just five runs against Suryakumar Yadav as Punjab won by 12 runs. Sehwag suggested Punjab Kings should reserve Arshdeep’s two overs for the death overs.

“Rabada and Arshdeep are important for Punjab Kings. Arshdeep bowled brilliantly. He didn’t take a wicket but I was impressed with him. We expect Rabada to perform obviously, as he is an international bowler,” Sehwag said on Cricbuzz.

“But Arshdeep played well in both, against GT as well as against MI. In fact, I would suggest they should save Arshdeep for 2 overs at the death. The 18th and 20th over should be given to Arshdeep; give Smith an over earlier. Or you can even drop Odean Smith and play an extra bowler,” he added. 

Arshdeep Singh is improving day by day: Parthiv Patel

Although Arshdeep has just picked a couple of wickets in five matches, his economical bowling has garnered him the attention. Former Indian wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel feels the Punjab Kings pacer could be a potential pick for the Indian team as well.

“Even if you take the previous year, he bowled one great over to Sanju Samson. Arshdeep is doing the job which is often difficult for a fast bowler. And he is doing that successfully. He is obviously bowling the yorkers well, but his bowling with the new ball has been great as well. He has variety, and he has that temperament as well. He is executing his skills under pressure, which is quite difficult,” Parthiv mentioned.

“I think that’s the reason he was with the team during the Sri Lanka series. He is being recognized and he is improving day by day. India needs a left-arm seamer and he could be a great option,” he added. 

Arshdeep was retained by Punjab Kings alongside skipper Mayank Agarwal in the IPL 2022 players’ retention list.
