Arshdeep Singh Receives Advice from Wasim Akram to Bowl Like Shaheen Afridi

News Desk1 week ago

Speaking with a global sports publication, Akram suggested that Arshdeep bowl longer deliveries early in the innings, “just like Pakistan’s left-armer Shaheen Shah Afridi.”

The previous captain, a left-arm fast bowler himself, thought that Arshdeep would benefit from longer deliveries, particularly given the West Indies’ conditions.

“In the West Indies, he (Arshdeep) will have some assistance with the new ball. The pitches are not as level as those in Pakistan or the Indian Premier League. With the new ball, he can take a gamble and pitch it up. Like Shaheen Afridi, bowl,” Akram remarked.

In order to guarantee that Arshdeep has protection to stop the boundary even in the event that he misses his mark, he should bowl full length with the mid-on and mid-off on the straighter side, he continued.

He is welcome to attempt that. The great pacer advised keeping the mid-on and mid-off a little straighter so that the two fielders could still stop the straight shots even if he missed the mark with the yorker.

Arshdeep was also counseled by Akram to depend on variances when in the dying over. Variations are what he should be employing for his second spell. Even though I haven’t seen him carefully lately, I believe he has what it takes to be an effective bowler for India on a regular basis, and I hope he is thinking about playing Test cricket. In T20s, you can become wealthy and well-known for a year. However, you must consider the longer format if you like to leave a lasting impression, he continued.

After defeating Afghanistan by 47 runs, India is presently ranked No. 2 in Super 8’s Group 1 of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024. The Super 8 match between the side captained by Rohit Sharma and Bangladesh is taking place at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua and Barbuda.
