Young Arshdeep has been a terrific find for the Men in Blue considering his abilities.

Brett Lee said, “We often hear about fast bowlers trying to bowl too fast. Don’t be obsessed with bowling at 160 kph ball every time. On one hand, I would always say bowl as quick but you also ought to bowl that right line and length. We talk about bowlers trying to bowl too fast, they lose their shape, rhythm, and seam position. Make sure you work on optimizing what is your best speed and work on your execution.”

He further added, “It will come from practice and bowling line and length. Can you bowl fast and have a good line and length? Of course, but don’t try to bowl every ball at 160. That would be the best way for Arshdeep. At the same time, don’t be bowling all slower balls every single time. Work on containing that speed but sometimes take 5 kph off and hit that line and length. Get that wicket. That is my advice to you.”

Furthermore, Bett Lee also suggested that the player must remain close to domestic cricket and keep performing when there are no top international events.

Brett Lee further stated, “Keep working on your skills in domestic cricket, because when there is no big World Cups, and you’re not playing Test cricket, there aren’t any spectators. This is where you have to shine. So, this is what I believe was the bread and butter of my career. Going back to first-class cricket, enjoy the quietness of the crowd and hone and build those skills. If you can look after that, the high-level will follow.”
