Arshdeep also mentioned his disappointment with the number of runs he gave away in the last 2 matches against Ireland and Pakistan respectively, before doing wonders in today’s fixture.

“Very very happy with the performance. In the last two games, I gave away little more runs, wasn’t happy with that. The team always shows belief in me and keep backing me, I had to deliver for them. The wicket is very conducive to fast bowlers and it’s helping us get some seam movement.” Arshdeep said.

Speaking about his strategy, ahead of playing in today’s match, Arshdeep mentioned that he had planned to “use the wicket” and “hit the hard lengths” due to the pitch conditions.

“The plan was simple, pitch it in the wicket and let the ball do the talking. Don’t give easy balls to score, our batsmen are also facing difficulties to score runs. The plan was to hit the hard lengths.” Singh said.

“In conditions like this, you can use the wicket more. When you are playing international cricket, you need to have some routines and the way you take care of your body counts. All the bowlers have done extremely well, looking forward to do the same in the next leg as well.” He added.

Today’s match also marked the last fixture at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, New York for the tournament.

India will now be competing against Canada for their next match in Miami, Florida.
