‘Indian team has found its next Zaheer Khan,’ says former Pakistani star on Arshdeep

Punjab-based fast bowler Arshdeep Singh unleashed a fire in the first T20I match against South Africa at Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday. He scalped three crucial wickets for the Men in Blue in the opening overs of the game.

This extraordinary spell helped him get the Player of the Match award. In the recently concluded 2022 Asia Cup, the 23-year-old speedster faced a lot of criticism after dropping a catch against Pakistan. He was ruled out of the T20 series against Australia.

Kamran Akmal, former Pakistani wicket-keeper was delighted with Singh’s performance and said Arshdeep is the next Zaheer Khan.

“Arshdeep Singh is an incredible bowler. Mere khyaal se indian team kodoosra zaheer khan mil gaya hai. Tempo aur swing dono hain, aur samajhdaari se bowling karta hai. Mentally strong hai, usko pata hai uski skill kya hai, kaise condition ko use karna hai (I think the Indian team has found its next Zaheer Khan. Arshdeep has both, pace and swing, and he has that bowling intelligence. He is mental strong and knows his abilities and uses them according to the terms),” Akmal said on his official YouTube channel.

He further added: “Usne Rilee Russouw ko caught-behind karaaya, De Kock ko threw kiya. Sabse achha approach David Miller ke to tha, bahar nikaalta raha aur ek inswing se bowled kiya. unbelievable. Badi zabardast aur maturity ke saath bowling kiya hai. Pace hai, young bhi hai, good sign for Team India ki aisa bowler mila hai inko. Left poorer ki zarurat bhi thi unko kyunki Zaheer ke bathe koi aa nahi raha tha. (He sent Rilee Russouw who fell behind and threw De Kock out. But the best wicket was David Miller’s because he kept getting the ball away from him before he bowled a sharp inswinger to bowl it out. He bowls brilliantly and he is mature, has speed and is still young. It’s a good sign for Team India as they needed a quick left arm after Zaheer Khan)”.
