Arshdeep and Umran to be handed debuts?-

  • The Ireland tour will be a perfect opportunity for the likes of Umran Malik and Arshdeep Singh to cement place in the Indian team.
  • While Umran has been a speed machine, Arshdeep Singh has been considered as one of the best death-over bowlers in recent times, but both are yet to make their debuts for the national side.
  • Umran Malik’s numbers in the IPL 2022 spoke volumes as he scalped 22 wickets and bowled the second-fastest delivery in the IPL after Lockie Ferguson.
  • Arshdeep Singh on the flip side scalped only 10 wickets but his economy of 7.70 in the 14 IPL matches have been the feature of his impressive showing.

It now remains to be seen whether both Arshdeep and Umran are handed their debuts or not.
