Voting for the award will begin in January, the ICC said in a statement.
Arshdeep made the shortlist less than six months after making his international debut.
In 21 T20 Internationals, the lanky point guard took 33 wickets at an average of 18.12, delivering breakthroughs with both new and old ball.
Building on a strong IPL career, the Indian national setup picked up the left arm quickly, and he seized the opportunity with the team looking to bounce back from a disappointing T20 2021 World Cup.

Arshdeep also received an ODI cap during the recent Indian tour of New Zealand, and the future is bright for the 23-year-old.
In a short time, Arshdeep put in some memorable performances, especially in the high-pressure T20 World Cup match against Pakistan at the MCG.
With swing and rhythm at his disposal, Arshdeep knocked out both members of Pakistan’s prolific opening pair. He pretended Babar Azam with her first lbw ball, before taking the wicket of Mohammad Rizwan at the end of his next class.
Arshdeep came back from the death to limit Asif Ali’s plans for a late assault, finishing with 3/32 of his four over allocation.
