Rahul Dravid and skipper Rohit Sharma should keep Arshdeep Singh away from excessive advice as much as possible: Brett Lee

Former Australia fast bowler Brett Lee wants Indian coach Rahul Dravid and skipper Rohit Sharma to avoid excessive advice to left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh as it can have the opposite effect. Arshdeep, who made his international debut in July this year, has done exceptionally well for India and cemented his place in the T20 squad. He played his first ODI in the current tour of New Zealand. Arshdeep took full advantage of Jasprit Bumrah’s absence and took 33 wickets in 23 T20 Internationals.

Lee said on his YouTube channel ‘Brett Lee Live’, “Often teams don’t know what to do with these young players.” We have seen earlier also that when a young player joins the team, he gets advice from players, TV, commentators and even hotels. Everyone has the right intentions but sometimes too much advice backfires.

He said, “So it is up to Rahul Dravid and Rohit Sharma to protect Arshdeep from excessive advice.” Lee also advised Arshdeep to stay injury-free. He said, “As a player who has played very few matches, I believe I am qualified to share some thoughts with him. There are some small things which I think can help Arshdeep’s action and he can take more wickets.

Lee said, “My first advice to Arshdeep is that usually people say that fast bowlers should go to the gym. He wants fast bowlers to be strong. You can be made strong through the mind as well. I believe go to the gym but don’t spend too much time there. Don’t worry about your muscles, it won’t help you to bowl fast.” Arshdeep was severely criticized on social media for dropping a simple catch of Pakistan batsman Asif Ali in the Asia Cup Super Four match. Lee advised the young fast bowler not to let social media distract him.

He said, “The second advice is to make yourself strong about social media posts. If you are a player and have a presence on social media, you should turn off ‘notifications’. Don’t read what is written about you.’ The former Australian cricketer also wants Arshdeep to continue playing domestic cricket. He said, “Keep working on your skills in domestic cricket because when there is no World Cup and you are not playing Test cricket then you should shine in domestic cricket.”
