New Delhi: India bowler Arshdeep Singh is being brutally trolled over his dropped catch of Pakistan batter Asif Ali during the Asia Cup Super-4 match. Twitter accounts called Arshdeep Singh a Khalistani and edited and fiddled with his Wikipedia page.
Here’s what happened in India vs Pakistan
In the third ball of the 18th over, Pakistan needed 32 runs off 15 balls. Ali hits the thick top-edge, which flew towards short third man. Arshdeep, stationed there, missed the sitter as the ball went through his hands.
If Arshdeep had taken the catch, Ali would have been out for a duck. Arshdeep bowled the final over with seven runs required, and bowled pretty well, eventually removing Ali, but it was too late in the piece as Pakistan won with two balls remaining.
Pakistani journalist WS Khan said, “Arshdeep is clearly a part of the Pakistan-backed Khalistan movement”.
