Arshdeep Singh Facts

  1. In 2017, Arshdeep’s father had urged him to move to Brampton, Canada, where an older sibling of his was already working, so that he could pursue higher studies and eventually settle down there, as many youngsters in Punjab aspire to. This was after Arshdeep was struggling to get games in age-group cricket. He, however, mustered the courage to request his father to give him one more year before making that decision.
  2. It turned out to be life-changing for him and his family as his performances in district cricket soon helped him break into the Punjab Under-19 squad. He took 13 wickets in the Vinoo Mankad Trophy (the premier limited-overs domestic competition for men’s under-19 cricket in India) for Punjab and had also recorded 19 wickets for Chandigarh in the Punjab Inter-District ODI Championship for the DP Azad Trophy, performances that eventually led to his selection in the squad for the 2018 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup, his breakthrough tournament.
  3. A few months later, he was picked in the Punjab Under-23 team and he made heads turn by scalping 8 wickets, including a hat-trick, in a fixture against Rajasthan, in the CK Nayudu Trophy (the premier limited-overs domestic competition for men’s under-23 cricket in India). The performance urged the local selectors to promote him by picking him in the state team for the 2018-19 Vijay Hazare Trophy (the premier domestic one-cricket competition in India).
  4. After his success in the 2018 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup, he was picked by the Kings XI Punjab in the IPL, for the 2019 season. Although he got to play just 3 games that season, he left his mark with a stirring performance in a game against the Rajasthan Royals, dismissing batsmen such as Ajinkya Rahane and Jos Buttler. The following season, 2020, was even better as he shone in the challenging death overs and picked 9 wickets in 8 games, cementing his place in the squad.
