Meanwhile, young India left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh said ‘adaptability’ is the main focus of the team ahead of the T20 World Cup 2022, starting next month in Australia. The T20 World Cup 2022 will be held in Australia from October 16 to November 13, and Arshdeep said the Indian bowlers are geared up for the tough challenge that awaits them.
“Adaptability is the big motive of our team. The main motive is adapting to the situations and demands of the team, whatever the situations and conditions are,” said the 23-year-old pacer, who made a sensational comeback after a disappointing outing in the Asia Cup 2022 recently. “When we go there (Australia) we will see how the conditions are. I'm looking forward to doing well.”
Arshdeep (3/32) and Deepak Chahar (2/24) broke South Africa’s backbone to help India register an easy eight-wicket win over the Proteas in the low-scoring first T20I of the three-match series here on Wednesday night.
“We are trying to tick all the boxes in the practice sessions and trying to execute all our plans on the field. Today (Wednesday) was really a good example of showing a good power play bowling and we are looking forward to do amazing things in the coming days,” Arshdeep said at the post-match presentation.
