Amid challenging conditions Gautam Gambhir is disappointed with this Indian Pacer.

After the match, Gautam Gambhir, in his analysis of the performance of the bowling department of team India, expressed disappointment with Arshdeep Singh while backing Mohammed Siraj, despite the pace duo's combined figures of 58/1 in five overs. Siraj leaked 14 runs in his first over, while Arshdeep conceded 24. The left-arm quick's second over showed some improvement, with 11 runs taken off it, before Siraj's next saw him claim the wicket of Heinrich Klaasen. Despite being the senior pro, Siraj concluded with figures of 1/27, and Gambhir, while also praising Mukesh Kumar, believes that his impact in taking wickets outweighs that of Arshdeep, who has been blowing hot and cold for the past year.
Gambhir said, "I feel that Mohammed Siraj will bowl much worse than this and yet finish with better figures. I was a bit disappointed with Arshdeep because after he bowled the first over, the powerplay was over and the ball got wet and tough to get a grip of. The 13th over in which Mukesh bowled was spectacular, with pin-point yorkers with a wet ball and against a bowler like David Miller. These are some big positives, and going forward, if the conditions aren't so wet, this bowling line-up will appear a lot different.”
