Arshdeep Singh overview
Arshdeep Singh is an Indian cricketer who is primarily a left-arm medium pacer and a right-hand batsman. He was born on 5th February, Madhya Pradesh.
Arshdeep started playing cricket in his school days. He lived in a village named Kharar which was nearly 15 kilometers from his school. The buses became always full and traveling with cricket-kit made thing worst for Arshdeep. So, the young schoolboy bought a cycle and traveled 30 kilometers up-and-down every day to go to school and returned home after rigorous training in the evening. Every day he used to travel after the Sunset and it became a quite risky riding cycle on the highway where the trucks along with several other long-route four-wheelers used to travel. Arshdeep’s childhood coach Jaswant Rai had also a major contribution in building up his student's mental strength and bowling skills.
Arshdeep had an impressive height and speed that was suitable to become a quick bowler but his wrist position was technically correct. His follow—through was also faulty and his bowling arm did not come close to his ears at the time of delivery. He repaired all these things under the careful observation of his childhood coach. Arshdeep also was so focused and determined that he even did not talk to his parents if had failed to pick up wickets in a match or even during the net session.
