IPL 2022: This year IPL helped us find some great talented fast bowlers. These fast bowlers were praised by many great cricketers and few got a chance to play for India.
Arshdeep Singh was retained by the Punjab Kings ahead of the Mega Auction. He has the potential to become a very good fast bowler. Punjab Kings knew that and decided to keep the gem to themselves.
Arshdeep did bowl well for Punjab Kings, however, he was unable to take much Wickets in the tournament. In his 14 matches, he only managed to take 10 Wickets but he did bowl the most number of Yorkers along with Bumrah.
Arshdeep had his opinion on his performance in IPL. In an interview, he said, “It’s not like that. You cannot judge if you bowled well or not by your figures. Mainly it’s about how your effort was and if you gave your 100%, and whether you could execute your plans or not, because execution is in your control, results are not.”
