Arshdeep Singh impressed everyone with his bowling in the 2022 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The death bowling skills of Arshdeep earned praise from every quarter. He bowled several pinpoint yorkers and mixed it up pretty well with slower balls to keep the batsman guessing in death overs.
As a result of his brilliant performance in IPL 2022, Arshdeep Singh was selected in the Indian T20I squad for the five-match T20I series against South Africa. The 23-year-old pacer from Punjab got his maiden call up for the Indian team. Arshdeep is currently practising with the Indian team in Delhi.
A video of the Punjab cricketer from the practice sessions is going viral on social media. In the video, Arshdeep Singh can be seen practising to hit yorkers in a unique manner. A baseball mitt is present at the front crease in front of the batter’s foot while a water bottle is kept around the tramline for the wide yorkers.
Arshdeep Singh can be seen hitting the baseball mitt and the water bottle to practice both types of yorkers and increase his accuracy of hitting yorkers under a lot of pressure. Arshdeep was nailing the yorkers in the nets session in Delhi.
