In the footage, Arshdeep exhibited agility and athleticism as he sprinted towards the boundary to execute a breathtaking catch.

Having emerged as one of Indian cricket’s rising stars, Arshdeep made his IPL debut with PBKS in 2019, featuring in three matches. Retained by the franchise ahead of the IPL 2020 auction, he enjoyed his career-best season in 2021, claiming 18 wickets in 12 games with an impressive average of 19 and an economy rate of 8.27. Last year, he continued his impactful performance, bagging 17 wickets in 14 matches. In the ongoing IPL 2024 season, Arshdeep has already taken two wickets in as many matches.

 

Beyond his bowling prowess, Arshdeep’s leadership qualities have also garnered praise. Australian pacer Nathan Ellis highlighted the valuable insights he gained from Arshdeep, particularly in the domain of death bowling.

“I have had some really good conversations with Arshdeep Singh about death bowling. He is someone who seems good at moving on, which is such a huge asset as a death bowler. It’s just the enjoyment of life that I think I have learned the best from the Punjab setup,” Nathan Ellis remarked.
