Former West Indies coach Arun Lal has said that Royal Challengers Bangalore’s fast bowler Akash Deep is an all-rounder and has yet to make it to the IPL.
Interview with Arun Lal:
In an interview to a private newspaper, Arun Lal said, “Akash Deep’s talent in the IPL has not yet been fully revealed. There is no bigger hitter than him. He hit sixes in 8 balls and crossed half a century. I think he himself is not fully aware of his talent. He only wants to be a bowler in T20 cricket. We need to add some more talent, ”he said.
Speaking further, Arun Lal said, “Akash Deep does not add any new talent. He has the ability to fly sixes. It is enough to use it properly, ”he said.
Six off 8 balls:
In the ongoing Ranji Trophy, Belgaum bowler Akash Deep faced 18 balls and scored 53 runs in the quarterfinals. The first eight of them included runs only through sixes. It was only after adding 48 runs that he hit a four and crossed the half-century mark.
