India bowling coach Paras Mhambrey gave plaudits to young pace sensation Arshdeep Singh, stating his ability to handle pressure is phenomenal. Arshdeep wreaked havoc on Pakistan’s top order on Sunday, dismissing star batters Mohammad Rizwan, Babar Azam, and Asif Ali at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
The left-arm fast bowler, playing his first World Cup, finished with the figures of 3/32 as Pakistan managed to post a competitive total of 159/8.
Arshdeep Singh has the ability to handle pressure, reckons the Indian bowling coach
“If we follow him (Arshdeep) for the last couple of years, looking at the way he’s performed I think the one thing that stands out with that kid is his ability to build pressure. He did hard work in IPL and he is doing hard work in different phases he bowls (for India) i.e. the first powerplay and then death overs,” Mhambrey said in the pre-match press conference.
“The composure he has shown, the clarity of thought process I think there will be ups and downs in his career but the way he has come back (after Asia Cup) the ability to handle pressure is phenomenal and I am not really surprised the way he has bowled in the first game (against Pakistan). We have a lot of confidence in him and he has a good future,” he added.
Hardik Pandya gives the team ‘balance and option’, reckons Paras Mhambrey
Mhambrey praised the all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who played a crucial role in the match against Pakistan.
“Hardik gives you that balance and option. He bowls you those four overs. Hardik wants to play all the matches. We are not thinking of resting him and no one is looking for rest. Hardik played a crucial knock. Virat finished the game but Hardik also played a crucial role. He gives you an option with both bat and ball. Pandya is fine and is available for the game against the Netherlands,” Mhambrey said.
