Umran Malik and Arshdeep Singh are two younger tempo prospects who’ve the potential to go a protracted distance. Umran impressed within the Indian Premier League along with his tempo after which made his worldwide debut within the T20I collection in opposition to Ireland. He took one wicket in that collection. Left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh, alternatively, has performed just one T20I for India. It occurred through the T20I collection in opposition to England. However, he has extra expertise than Umran of enjoying first-class cricket.
Former Indian cricket workforce participant Aakash Chopra Feels Umran continues to be not prepared for worldwide cricket.
“Umran Malik has something that others don’t have – extreme pace. You can’t teach that to anyone. You can teach everything else – line and length, yorker, bouncer, slower ones, kuckle ball etc. But you can’t teach someone how to bowl with speed. You are either born a pacer or you are born a medium-pacer,” Chopra mentioned in a video in his YouTube channel,
“No doubt, he has the pace. But what I feel is that Umran Malik is not ready for international cricket as of now. It is very simple, he needs time. He hasn’t played a lot of cricket and so he is still raw.”
Regarding Arshdeep Singh, Chopra mentioned: “Arshdeep is more mature. He has been playing regularly. He is a left-armer, nails the yorkers. He has got brains also. When you don’t have that much speed, you use your brains more. Experience counts for everything. Arshdeep, in my opinon. is more complete bowler as compared to Umran Malik right now. But what Umran has nobdy else has. He is special.”
