New Delhi. There is only 5 days left for the start of T20 series between India and South Africa. The eyes of the selectors including the fans will also be on this series. Since this series is being seen as a preparation for the World Cup to be held in Australia, it will be really interesting to see the Indian team’s playing XI against Africa. In this series, some new faces who have performed brilliantly in IPL have also been included in the team. The name of fast bowler Umran Malik is also included in this. But, it is possible that before Umran Malik, another fast bowler gets a place in the playing 11.
Arshdeep Singh may get a place in playing 11
Arshdeep Singh plays for Punjab Kings in IPL. He managed to impress the selectors in this season towards his tremendous bowling. Arshdeep bowled accurately, especially in the death overs. Arshdeep also got the reward for this excellent performance and he was given a place in Team India.
Economy rate better than Umran
One of the reasons for Arshdeep Singh being included in the playing 11 of the Indian team can also be that he has proved to be much better than Umran Malik in terms of economy rate. Arshdeep played a total of 14 matches in this season and managed to take 10 wickets. During this, Arshdeep’s economy rate was 7.70. This economy rate is very good for the T20 format. In the death overs, he did not allow many expert T20 batsmen to score runs easily.
Umran took 22 wickets
Umran is far ahead of Arshdeep in the matter of taking wickets. While Arshdeep took 10 wickets in 14 matches, Umran took 22 wickets in the same number of matches. However, during this period, the economy rate of Umran was 9.03 which is much higher than that of Arshdeep.
