IND vs SA: Ahead of series opener, temperature rises in Delhi; SA cricketer made funny tweet

India’s first T20 match will be against South Africa at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi. Before this game, the temperature in the national capital has reached 42 degree Celsius. The city has become so hot that South African cricketer Tabrez Shamsi jokingly tweeted that it is cold outside. “Just a cool 42 degrees outside,” he said.

When another account replied that it was 43 degrees outside, Shamsi asked how people survive in such heat.

India will play a five-match series without the services of senior players like Rohit Sharma. Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja. In his absence, KL Rahul will lead the team. Ahead of the first match of the series, an eye will be on the probable bowling line-up.
Umran Malik got an extended spell during India’s first training session, but it was his colleague Arshdeep Singh who looked more impressive at the nets, including honing his yorker skills. However, both the juniors may have to wait for their turn with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan leading the pack.

When it comes to pushing, Arshdeep seems to be a better bet than Umran. Led by Rahul Dravid and Paras Mhambrey, the Indian team’s evening session was as intense as it could get.

Umran, who was known for his fast pace, bowled as fast as Rishabh Pant did not leave any chance to dodge him as fast. The faster he struck, the more fierce was Pant’s intention.

Young Arshdeep first bowled a short spell and then had a session under bowling coach Mhambrey when he was seen practicing a blockhole delivery. Mhambrey placed a baseball mitt (glove) at the front crease, on the middle stump line for yorkers right at middle stump, and an energy drink bottle around the tramline for wide yorkers.

Arshdeep had to hit two ‘props’ as part of the match simulation. “Okay? (Okay),” he would ask Mhambrey as to who would tell him to focus on the line over the length.

So who was the better bowler out of these two? Arshdeep certainly possessed a multi-dimensional skill set as compared to the speedster from Jammu. Another factor that shows that the Punjab player may be a little ahead of Umran is the time of training.
