Left arm pacer Arshdeep Singh played an important role for India in Asia Cup 2022 and T20 World Cup 2022 as a replacement for Jasprit Bumrah. Arshdeep Singh has been a frontline pace bowler for India in the last one year in T20Is, but he has played only three games in ODIs and hasn't taken a wicket in the 50-over format.
Arshdeep Singh hasn't got an opportunity to play much of ODIs despite being a sensation in T20Is, but still we will see why he should be picked in the 50-over World Cup squad without having any experience in ODIs.
1. Lack of left arm seam bowling option
Indian team doesn't have a luxury of having left-arm pace bowling post Zaheer Khan era while other teams have had the service of bowlers like Mitchell Starc, Trent Boult, etc. Left arm swing bowler like Arshdeep Singh might play an important, game changing role by picking wickets at much needed time, thus putting the opponent team on a backfoot.
Arshdeep Singh will play a key role in death overs of the game in ODIs since he has the knack of picking wickets in crucial stages of the match.
