CricketArshdeep Singh completely lost it against Sri Lanka, says former Australia pacer

Srinagar: Former Australia pacer Brett Lee has said that India’s young pacer Arshdeep Singh completely lose it in that T20 game against Sri Lanka , costing him his place in the side.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Lee explained why a no ball is a “bowler’s worst enemy” and how bowling it sees the bowler lose rhythm during a match.

“No ball is a bowler’s worst enemy. Nothing costs a bowler more mental agony and embarrassment than a no ball because you not only have to bowl an extra delivery, you give the license to the batter to do anything he/she wants. It’s a dagger through the bowler’s heart. Rhythm is a funny thing. A bowler can do magic if he/she has it but it makes you look hapless and helpless once that rhythm is lost,” he said.

Further explaining how much a no ball can cost a bowler, he cited Arshdeep’s recent performance in that match against Sri Lanka where he had delivered five such deliveries.

“I saw India’s Arshdeep Singh completely lose it in that T20 game against Sri Lanka a few days back. He bowled no ball after no ball after no ball. 5 no balls in that game. It would be a hard pill to swallow for him. He only bowled two overs conceding 37 runs. And he was returning to the side after being sidelined with an injury. He overstepped three times in a row in his second over. Sometimes a bowler can lose rhythm when they are coming back from an injury because they are trying too hard. They lose their shape and momentum. It’s tough because you want to achieve that dream of picking wickets and keep the captain happy,” he said.
