Arshdeep Singh has carved what may be considered the best redemption arc in cricket’s history ever. The young bowler received severe flak after he dropped a catch at a crucial moment of the India Vs Pakistan clash in the Asia Cup. India lost the match and thus, fans dumped it all on Arshdeep’s back for dropping the catch in the penultimate over. The trolling was nasty to the point where many prominent names in the game thought it necessary to back Arshdeep Singh.
However, just in the next face-off with Pakistan, Arshdeep Singh has turned the tables a full 180°. India clashed against ace rivals Pakistan in the T20 World Cup opening game. And the pace prodigy rose to the occasion. With India bowling first, Arshdeep struck the swing in the pitch, ultimately scalping three important wickets in his spell.
In his very first over, Arshdeep Singh sent the Pakistani captain Babar Azam back on a duck. Next, the current no. 1 batter Mohammad Rizwan walked right back at Singh’s attack. Singh provided the dream start to the Indian innings. Returning in the death overs, he scalped the wicket of Asif Ali in the 17th over. Faltering just a bit in the 19th over, Singh let his economy fall at the hands of three boundaries. However, those were not enough to wash out his heroics at the start of the game.
