“He Is Young, Confident And Accurate”: Irfan Pathan Stipulates The Special Traits Of This PBKS Bowler

Former Indian Pacer Irfan Pathan has his own say on the impressive Punjab Kings southpaw Arshdeep Singh. Arshdeep is doing excellent work for PBKS from the last couple of IPL editions. He is the guy who is not renowned for gun fast bowling but for the accurate line and lengths which always do the trick for him. In this season, though he has 10-wickets in 13 games his miser economy of 7.83 helps the side of Punjab to curb runs when it is most needed. 

    Irfan Pathan himself as a fast bowler used to keep a similar approach and mindset to Arshdeep Singh when he was in his golden days. In the latest game against Delhi Capitals, Arshdeep bowled a superb spell of 3/37 in 4-overs with an economy rate of 9.24. Pathan previously also indicated his chances for the Indian cricket team, if he continues to bowl with this sharp accuracy. 

“Arshdeep is a special player. He is young, confident, and accurate”.

   Arshdeep Singh in his total career has played 36 matches and picked up 40 wickets since the edition of IPL 2019. Irfan Pathan was putting his viewpoint on Arshdeep, during the post-match talks at Cricket Live (Star Sports). There he said, “Arshdeep is a special player. He is young, confident, and accurate. All these qualities distinguish him from the bowlers of his age. He’s keeping big players like MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, or someone else silent in the death overs and that speaks volumes about the kind of talent he possesses”.

 His growth has been phenomenal. Despite the presence of a proven international pacer in Kagiso Rabada, an uncapped Indian seamer is getting the recognition to prove how good a talent he is. He’s going to be the next big thing for Punjab Kings”, Pathan wrapped up.
