After the 1st ODI heroics, Shaun Pollock praised the 'brave mental approach' of Arshdeep Singh

Shaun Pollock heaped praise on the brave mental approach of Arshdeep Singh when it comes to picking wickets when the opportunity presents itself after his heroics in Johannesburg. Arshdeep delivered a remarkable performance in the first ODI against South Africa.

The young pacer of Team India showcased his skill by claiming a five-wicket haul, with figures of 5/37 in his 10 overs. Speaking to Star Sports after the game, Pollock said that the left-arm pacer has sorted out how to bowl up front and at the death. The Proteas legend felt that the key for Arshdeep on the day was the swing he got through the air, and he praised his approach during the game.

Shaun while praising Arshdeep said, "Yeah. I thought it was a brilliant performance from him. I noticed in the T20 International, the last one happened that on the ground, he didn't open the bowling."

"And for me, when I've watched him over the years, I reckon the two elements of his game that he's got down and well sorted out are his ability to shape the ball up front and be effective. And then at the back end, he has some really good yorkers, and then you can mix them up with some slow deliveries."

"Also, having the brave mental approach to be deciding to try and pick up a wicket when the opportunity presented itself. So I think it was superb.”
