He was just lately a part of the of the crew for the white-ball excursions of West Indies and Ireland, however was left of the Asia Cup squad, in addition to the preliminary World Cup crew. Arun hailed Arshdeep and was stunned over his exclusion from the squad.
“We tried bringing in left-arm fast bowlers during our time. We always wanted one. Arshdeep was promised a lot and I don’t know why he isn’t there in the squad. To me, he looked very, very impressive. He is capable of bowling yorkers and the late half can move the ball. He is an exciting fast bowler and I wonder where he is now. These bowlers were supposed to come back to India during Covid time and it was Ravi who stopped the move. It gave us the option to make them play,” Arun mentioned on ‘Cricket Basu’ YouTube channel.
