India Tour of New Zealand: Arshdeep Singh on Umran Malik – ‘Bowling with him is beneficial to me’Abdul Gh Lone 29 November 2022 0 COMMENTS
Ahead of the third One Day International between India and New Zealand, left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh stated that bowling with fellow pacer Umran Malik benefits him on the field. Both the pacers made their debuts in the 50-over format in the first ODI at Auckland that India eventually lost by seven wickets.
Arshdeep is known for his death bowling and his strength is his yorkers, whereas Umran can threaten batters by bowling consistently at a pace of over 145kph. While Arshdeep had a rather expensive outing, having gone wicketless for 68 runs, Umran put in an impressive performance where he picked up 2/66.
Moment to cherish! 😊

Talking about his camaraderie with Umran in the pre-match press conference, Arshdeep said, “The atmosphere in the dressing room with him is quite good. He likes to joke around as well.”
He added, “As far as bowling is concerned, bowling with him is beneficial to me because batters can get deceived by pace when they have to face 135 kph after facing someone who is bowling around 155 kph. So we are enjoying bowling alongside and off the field too. Hopefully we will continue our partnership.”
