Aakash Chopra urged Arshdeep Singh to be more economical with the ball and fight for his spot as Jasprit Bumrah’s pace bowling partner in the T20 World Cup.

Former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra has urged young pacer Arshdeep Singh to step up his game in India’s crucial T20 World Cup clash against the United States. While acknowledging Singh’s decent performance in the first two matches, Chopra expressed concern about his economy rate.

Singh has taken three wickets in the first two matches but has leaked runs at a high rate, conceding 66 runs in his eight overs. In contrast, Siraj has been more economical, conceding only 32 runs in seven overs despite managing just one wicket.

“Arshdeep has done well, but I expect more from him. He’s been a bit expensive with the ball, which is surprising considering the conditions,” Chopra said in a YouTube video, as quoted by Sportskeeda.

Chopra emphasised the importance of Singh performing well to retain his spot as Jasprit Bumrah’s preferred pace bowling partner. Mohammed Siraj, another fast bowler, is putting pressure on Singh’s position with his economical bowling spells.

“I want him to take wickets with the new ball and be economical throughout his spell. In an ideal scenario, he should bowl four overs, concede around 20 runs, and pick up two or three wickets,” Chopra explained.

“Although Arshdeep is still ahead on that list, Mohammed Siraj is right there. So if you have to play in the Super Eights and you don’t want to give your place to Siraj, because only two pacers will play, and one is certainly Bumrah, Arshdeep will have to capture this and the next match,” concluded Chopra on Arshdeep.
