Kings XI Punjab’s death specialist, Chris Jordan is highly impressed with youngster Arshdeep Singh as the latter delivered the final blow in their defence of a low total against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Arshdeep Singh took wickets of Vijay Shankar, Priyam Garg and Sandeep Sharma in his two-over spell at the death, and gave ample support to Chris Jordan as KXIP defended stole the game from SRH’s grasp. The left-arm pacer from Madhya Pradesh has bowled brilliantly this season picking up 9 wickets in 6 matches at an economy of 8.37.
He’s brought in a free mind, free spirit: Chris Jordan
Chris Jordan, the Man of the Match versus SRH for his 3/17, heaped praises towards Arshdeep. The English pacer said the Arshdeep has been brilliant since he has come in. He reckons Arshdeep has brought a free mind and free spirit. Since he isn’t that experienced, he just backed himself to bowl length deliveries.
Arshdeep with his medium pace and variations in slower balls has outfoxed batters this season. The 21-year-old has shown maturity in hitting proper lengths after players like Sheldon Cottrell and Krishnappa Gowtham had disappointing returns.
According to a report in Hindustan Times, Chris Jordan said, “Arshdeep has been brilliant since he’s come in; he’s brought in a free mind, free spirit. He’s not that experienced and I think that’s helped because he’s just backed himself.”
Kings XI Punjab, sitting at the fifth spot will take on the fourth-placed Kolkata Knight Riders in Sharjah on Monday. It is expected to be a mouth-watering contest as both the teams are coming off inspiring victories.
