India's fast bowler Arshdeep Singh made his debut for the English county team Kent in a County Championship match against Surrey. In his first game, he secured a maiden wicket by dismissing Ben Foakes for just 3 runs. Employing an over-the-wicket bowling technique, Arshdeep managed to make the ball nip back and trapped Foakes plumb in front of the stumps.

Throughout the innings, Arshdeep bowled ten overs, conceding a mere 12 runs, which included four maidens. His consistent accuracy and movement posed constant challenges for the opposing batsmen.

Prior to the match, Singh revealed that it was India head coach Rahul Dravid, who encouraged him to join Kent. Additionally, Arshdeep shared his feelings upon joining the squad, stating that apart from some minor changes, it didn't feel much different from home and he eagerly anticipated getting straight into the action.
