Arshdeep Singh’s coach reveals what Wasim Akram told Arshdeep during an interaction
The first of India’s three Twenty20 International matches against Australia will take place at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Tuesday. Arshdeep Singh, who has been selected for the T20 World Cup 2022 team, will miss the opportunity to play in front of his home fans in India since he was rested for the series against Australia. Arshdeep Singh spent a lot of time playing cricket in his formative years in front of his home crowd.
The left-arm seamer was fairly good for India in the death overs at the Asia Cup 2022, and he had the opportunity to meet one of his heroes, the legendary Pakistani cricketer Wasim Akram. Arshdeep’s coach, Jaswant Rai, has shared the tale of how Akram had left a challenging topic for the child to ponder during their conversation together.
It was claimed by Jaswant that Wasim Akram had complimented Arshdeep on his bowling, but that he was hesitant to provide any advice to Arshdeep if he believed he had already reached perfection. He went on to say that Arshdeep was allowed to pick and choose when he wished to learn anything from Akram and that this declaration had presented Arshdeep with a difficult choice. The teenager was perplexed and worried that Akram, the former Pakistan bowler, might be offended if he did not seek advice from the former player.
“Arshdeep told me that he met Akram Bhai, who told him, “Sardarji, you bowl very well. You are a good bowler. Don’t come to me if you think you’re perfect. You can come to me whenever you want if you want to ask me anything or learn something from me,” Jaswant Rai told journalist Vimal Kumar on his YouTube channel.
“He then told me that he kept thinking about that question when he went to bed at night. He thought that if he didn’t go, Akram would be upset and think Sardarji knows everything. So the next day, he went to talk to Akram,” he said.
