Arshdeep Singh is one of the biggest success stories in Indian cricket in the past year and the way he has risen in the ranks of the Indian team has been a treat to watch but the rise of this young fast bowler has not been easy and the struggle and the years of performing in the IPL has resulted in him becoming one of the leading pacers in the Indian team.
Without wasting any more time let’s get into how Arshdeep Singh became this young great fast bowler in India.
Arshdeep Singh was first spotted in the IPL a few years back when he started playing for Punjab Kings and he got famous for being a rare left hand fast bowler and someone who could bowl the Yorkers at all times and the batters were not able to score sixes against him at all and this was the first time he got noticed and the clamor for his inclusion in the Indian team started.
Consistency in the IPL
Doing 1 session of the IPL is something that a lot of young players do but to do it year after year and making sure that the selectors have to pick you is extraordinary and that is what Arshdeep Singh did. He knew that he had to do it year after year in the IPL and he got better each year and bowled more Yorkers at the death and he was proving to be the best player from Punjab Kings. After 3-4 years of consistently delivering in the IPL the road to his India selection opened up.

Grabbing the opportunity to play for India
Very few players from the outside get a chance to play for India and even fewer perform so well that they become someone who cannot be dropped and that is what happened with young Arshdeep Singh when he first came in the Indian team because he knew he had to perform to stay in the team and that is exactly what he did since his first match and he got better and earned the respect of the fans and his teammates.
Becoming the leader of the pace attack
When Jasprit Bumrah was ruled out of the T20I World Cup a few months ago then the bowling attack became weaker but then Arshdeep Singh stepped up and he was the leader of the bowling attack and he was the Yorker king and in this World Cup he was the leading wicket taker for India with 10 Wickets and he will get better with time. The future is great for the young Arshdeep Singh.
