Arshdeep Singh might be one of the names pooping in the mind of selectors if Jaydev Unadkat gets ruled out of the ICC WTC final. The Punjab pacer has been bowling extremely well for the last few months and is in good touch. He has been swinging white ball early on and has troubled the batters as well. With the amount of swing, he’s generating with the white ball, it’s fair to say that he can make batters dance to his tune with the red ball. Also with English conditions offering swing, him being a left-arm pacer could prove out to be handy for the team. He can be the like-to-like replacement for Jaydev Unadkat as well.
The injury to Jaydev Unadkat might open the gates for Ishant Sharma to make a comeback into the Indian side for the ICC WTC final. The pacer has looked in great rhythm in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 and has been swinging the new ball to a great extent. His experience might come in handy for the team as he has been the leader of the Indian attack for a long time and can be vital to the team’s chances.
