Despite the batsman’s height, Punjab Kings King Arship Singh has backed his executions and net sessions to gain dominance in match situations. The 22-year-old kept his nerves and defended 12 tracks against a well-disposed Sanju Samson in the recently suspended edition of the Indian Premier LeagueIPL).

In an exclusive interaction with India TV, Arshdeep revealed how the bowling of Punjab Kings players in the nets helps him prepare for match situations.
“We have KL Rahul,, Chris Gale, Nicholas Puran and Sarfaraz Khan in the networks. Bowling against them at exercises helps you analyze your shortcomings. When you bowl in front of such great players, you get an idea of the areas where you miss the most tracks. When bowling at this level, you can’t apply pressure to do better. Always return your performance and you will get good results.
“Each team is thinking of winning the IPL title before the start of the tournament. This year, Punjab did well in both divisions in just 1-2 games. But we hope to win the other six games when the season resumes,” he said.
Arshdeep also doesn’t have a “dream weekend” written in his books, but any extraction that helps his team win the match is his favorite.
“I didn’t plan to take any dream. Every leash I take at crucial moments is my dream. While I was playing age cricket, the plan was to become a leading player at the door. It feels good when you plan. Last year I was I planned to bow wide yorkies to Andre Russell at the time of his death, and that worked, “said the young lecher.
Arshdeep, who registered seven wickets in six games in the IPL 2021, also opened up to things he learned from. Mohamed Shami in the dugout in the Punjab. He also talks about his strengths in bowling.
“I discuss small things, including the stitching position, with Shami Bhai. We also talk about how to react when you are hit by a batsman. Since we were all in a bio-bubble, it becomes a lively atmosphere, just like a family.
“I consider myself an attacking bowler. But this year I had a conversation with captain KL Rahul and Shami. I also focused on bowling with more balls and therefore my economy also improved along with my wicket calculation,” said Arshdeep.
