Arshdeep Singh, who impressed everyone with his bowling in the Asia Cup and then the T20 World Cup, is the only left-arm fast bowler in Team India in the current era. He bowled brilliantly in the recent World Cup. During the World Cup, Arshdeep Singh took 10 wickets at an average of 15.60 and an economy of 7.80. Seeing his bowling, everyone started comparing him with the great fast bowler Wasim Akram. Former South African star cricketer Jonty Rhodes has given his opinion on this.
what did jonty rhodes say
Jonty Rhodes believes Arshdeep Singh has made tremendous progress as a cricketer and has immense potential but comparing him with Wasim Akram could put pressure on him. Speaking to the press during an event, Rhodes said, “I think he will be under a lot of pressure when compared to the great fast bowler Wasim Akram, the Sultan of Swing.” Has progressed in the last two years and same with other Indian fast bowlers. You look at Bumrah and he progressed so fast and Arshdeep did the same, he is a young fast bowler. He is willing to learn and listen to you and work hard.
The former South African cricketer said, “He swings the ball and has bowled brilliantly in the death overs.” He bowls well in the powerplay, has good ball control and can bowl effectively around the wicket like Wasim Akram.
Rhodes has been with Arshdeep in IPL
Rhodes, who has worked with Arshdeep as the fielding coach of IPL team Punjab Kings, believes the young pacer has a lot of potential. Young players are expected to replace the senior players in the Indian team after two consecutive T20 World Cup disappointments. Asked which players the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) should invest in, Rhodes said, “The players in the team that went to New Zealand are too young for the BCCI to invest in.” Apart from this, there are some other great players waiting to get their chances.

He also favored the T10 format, saying it is a good format for multi-sport events like the Olympics and Commonwealth Games.
