Former BCCI selector Kiran More has expressed his happiness with Arshdeep Singh’s selection for the Asia Cup and said that India has finally found the left-arm pacer they were searching for.
Singh has been in top form since making his international bow for India, putting in consistent performances for the team and picking up crucial wickets.
He was also given the Man of the Series award in India’s 4-1 series win over West Indies recently.
More, on Star Sports’ show Follow the Blues, as quoted by News 18, said that he was happy for the 23-year-old after he made it to the Asia Cup squad and suggested that India’s long search for a good left-arm seamer may have finally come to an end.
“I’m also happy for Arshdeep Singh (for his Asia Cup selection). He has been performing well in the IPL, against West Indies, where he was the Player of the Series and bowled well. We were in search of a left-arm bowler, who we have found in Arshdeep Singh,” said More.
The former cricketer also suggested that the upcoming tournament will be special for Virat Kohli since he needs to make a comeback.
“This will definitely be special for Virat Kohli since he now needs to make a comeback, it’s been too many innings.”
“The other batsmen also have been performing really well. Overall, the squad looks good, well balanced. There are good all-rounders too R Ashwin has been batting well. Definitely, Axar Patel has been performing well through the year too,” said More.
More also expressed his happiness with the team combination and Ravi Bishnoi’s selection in the squad and said that according to him, the squad was good.
“I like the team combination and I was really happy with Ravi Bishnoi’s selection. It brought a variation to the team. According to me, this is a good team,” said More.
