Arshdeep unaffected of the toxic comments on Social media

Pacer’s mother Daljeet Kaur also said that though the match against Pakistan was lost, it is normal for mistakes to happen.
People’s work is to talk. If they criticise a player, they do so because they love him and want him to do good. We are taking it (comments on the internet) positively. We were praying that Arshdeep would stop those two runs. Dropped catches are a part of the game. But he made up for it in the next over,”HE ADDED.
Arshdeep’s parents hope that India and Pakistan meet for the third time in the final of the Asia Cup
