After recently being awarded the 'Player of the series' award for his phenomenal bowling against West Indies, Arshdeep Singh has opened up on how he has been keeping things simple for himself.
The speedster credited Coach Rahul Dravid and Captain Rohit Sharma for the clarity they have provided. The Punjab Kings fast bowler has been performing consistently with the ball, picking up a total of 7 wickets at an economy of 6.58, including a three-wicket haul in the series against the West Indies.
Singh on his newfound clarity
"The talk is to be adaptable. We have to do whatever the demand of the wicket and the team is. We do what the captain and coaches tell us. Credit to them for the clarity they have given me,”

“It feels really good and feel grateful to represent my country. Tried to keep things simple. As Rahul Dravid sir says we are a processed based teams so I stick with my process. I don’t try to think much about other things during the bowling,"
“I don’t know what my greatest asset is but keeping things simple and focusing on process helps me. The way the captains back the youngsters, and the feel of the dressing room is very nice. Youngsters and seniors feel the same. Helps as a youngster to come in and repeat what you do with your IPL and state teams."
What does the fast bowler's consistency mean for India?
Ahead of the Asia Cup and the ICC Men's World Cup, India is actively looking for bowlers to stabilise the lineup. Singh has proved himself to be worthy in the handful of chances he has received. The pacer has also been brilliant in death. With his current performances it will be interesting to see whether or not he makes the Asia Cup squad.
