Former Pakistani player Kamran Akmal praised Arshdeep Singh during India vs. South Africa and compared him to the legendary Zaheer Khan.
Arshdeep Singh’s prominence has grown after he made his Indian Premier League debut in 2019. The spinner made his international debut during the tour of England after a stellar IPL 2022 season. On the subsequent West Indies tour, he recorded seven wickets. He represented India at the Asia Cup last month, but his performance wasn’t great. But earlier this week, in the first T20I encounter against South Africa, the young bowler displayed great resiliency.
Arshdeep struck three times in his maiden over despite missing the T20I series against Australia.
When facing Arshdeep, who finished the game in Thiruvananthapuram with figures of three for 32 on a swinging pitch, the Proteas hitters appeared completely perplexed.
Former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal compared Arshdeep’s performance to that of a renowned Indian left-arm spinner.
“Arshdeep Singh bowls quite well. Akmal declared, “I think India has found its new Zaheer Khan,” in a video that was posted to his YouTube channel.
“Arshdeep has bowling intelligence in addition to pace and swing. He elaborated. He is intelligent, aware of his advantages, and effective at using them.
Despite his youth, Arshdeep’s bowling knowledge and maturity are advantageous to the Indian team, according to Akmal.
“He caught Rilee Rossouw from behind and castled De Kock. The best dismissal, however, went to David Miller, who consistently caused the ball to veer away from him before throwing a fine inswinger to remove him. He bowls quite quickly and is both youthful and experienced. This is great news for Team India because they needed a left-armer after Zaheer Khan, he continued.
Arshdeep’s inclusion on the 15-man team for the T20 World Cup in Australia is remarkable.
