“He is just like…”Sunil Gavaskar’s massive praise for Arshdeep Singh after his heroics against the USA

In the T20 World Cup 2024, India’s Arshdeep Singh emerged victorious as the Player of the Match against the USA. In the tournament’s third match on Wednesday, June 12, Arshdeep, who had up until then been Jasprit Bumrah’s sidekick, put matters into his own hands and produced an incredible spell of 4/9. Sunil Gavaskar, a former Indian batter, praised Arshdeep and supported the seamer’s immediate entry into the Test format.

After the USA vs. India game, Gavaskar suggested on Star Sports that Arshdeep should be given consideration for Test cricket soon because of his ability to swing the ball both ways, much like Jasprit Bumrah.

“He looked to bowl at hard lengths, looking to get the ball into the right-hander, and a little away for the left-handers. That’s been his strength, to be able to get both those deliveries on the spot and he wasn’t looking to bowl too many yorkers today, he was looking to bowl the hard lengths. And his temperament is fantastic,” Gavaskar said on Star Sports after the match on Wednesday.

Arshdeep helped India limit the co-hosts to just 110 runs by taking two wickets in his opening spell and two wickets in his second innings at the Nassau County Stadium in New York. Since batting grew quite challenging during the chase, Arshdeep’s frugal spell proved to be highly important for Rohit Sharma’s squad.

“I do believe that he, like, Bumrah can be a very, very good bowler in red-ball cricket as well. Because if he can move the white ball so well, just imagine what he can do with the red ball. So I think the selection committee would do very well to look at him as an option for the red-ball game as well,” concluded Gavaskar.

Team India will play their final game against Canada on 15th June in Florida.
