IND Vs AUS 5th T20I: I Will Take All The Learnings From This Series, Says Arshdeep Singh

Arshdeep Singh, who finished off with figures of 2/40, said that he felt he would have ended up being the 'culprit' of the game before his final over heroics against Australia in the 5th T20I.

Indian pacer Arshdeep Singh thought that it was simply divine intervention and total faith in him from skipper Suryakumar Yadav that pushed him to defend the 10 runs in the final over of the a thrilling series finale in the fifth and final T20I, wherein India beat the Aussies by six runs in Bengaluru. (Report | As It Happened | Cricket News)

The left-armer has been decent with the ball in the death overs in the T20 format for more than a year but after giving away 37 runs in the first three overs on Sunday, Arshdeep thought that he won't be able to defend the 10 runs against the Aussie skipper.

"I gave away too many runs but God gave me another chance and the support staff believed in me. To be honest, nothing was going in my mind. Surya bhai told me whatever has to happen will happen," a beaming Arshdeep  said at the end of the match, having nailed those block-hole deliveries, giving away only three runs.

Arshdeep, who finished the match with figures of 2/40 in four overs, gave an honest verdict on his performance and stated that it was just a below-par series for himself as he sought focus and to rethink on his bowling in the future.

"I think it was just a par series for me personally. I need to rethink and perform even better in the future. I will take all the learnings from this series. The bowling wasn't near par, according to the standards of the Indian team, but a lot of lessons learnt but I will come back from the mistakes," said Arshdeep. 

Arshdeep will need to work on it fast as India will now jet down to South Africa to play three T20Is starting December 10 in Kingsmead, Durban.
