India versus South Africa: Arshdeep Singh shows signs of cracking ODI code

The depth of India’s fast bowling is dizzying. The blue-chipped pace trio of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj, the batsmen-wreckers of the World Cup gone by, were nowhere to be seen in the Bullring. Bumrah and Siraj are preserving themselves for their country’s latest tilt at winning a Test series in South Africa; the hard labour of a frantic year took its toll on Shami’s body. Thrown, thus, into the deep end were a trio with a collective register of nine games and five wickets.

But on a surface with variable bounce, lateral movement in the initial overs and sufficient pace, the callow pair of Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan sufficed, sharing nine wickets between them, and consigning the hosts to their lowest ever total at home, a meagre 116, which India’s batsmen hunted down with minimal fuss, with 200 balls to spare and eight wickets in tact.

No one would have anticipated them to sting as painfully as they did. Arshdeep would later admit that he was nervous to pick the new ball because he had not taken a wicket yet in three games. He would not only grab his first scalp, but also would register his maiden five-for in international cricket. (READ MORE)
