23-year-old pacer Arshdeep Singh was subjected to extreme criticism on social media after he dropped a catch throughout the Asia Cup Super 4 match towards Pakistan on Sunday on the Dubai International Stadium. Rohit Sharma-led Team India misplaced the match by 5 wickets and after that, Arshdeep is being attacked by trolls on social media. However, the pacer has instructed his mother and father that he’s laughing on the tweets he’s studying on the web and he’s solely going to take positives out of it.
“Arshdeep had taken all the criticism on the chin and was upbeat. “His exact words were, ‘I am laughing at all these tweets and messages. I am only going to take positives from it. This incident has only given me more confidence’,” Darshan, Arshdeep’s father told the Indian Express newspaper.
“Arshdeep told us that the whole Indian team is supporting him,” said his mother Baljeet. t
The biggest talking point of the game between India and Pakistan came in the 18th over of Pakistan’s innings as young seamer Arshdeep Singh dropped a relatively easy chance off the bowling of Ravi Bishnoi and Asif Ali got a reprieve. Arshdeep then came on to bowl the final over, but he was not able to defend seven runs, and in the end, Pakistan walked away with a victory.
“As a parent, it feels really bad. He is only 23. I don’t want to say much about trolls. You can’t shut everyone’s mouth. Without fans, there is no game. There are some who stand by you no matter what and others who can’t digest a single loss. But at the end of the day, only one team can win,” said Arshdeep’s father Darshan.
Speaking at the post-match press conference, India batter Virat Kohli showed his support for Arshdeep, saying mistakes can happen from anyone in high-pressure games: “Anyone can commit the error, the scenario was tight. It was a high-pressure sport and errors can occur. I nonetheless keep in mind I used to be taking part in my first Champions Trophy and the match was towards Pakistan, I had performed a really unhealthy shot towards Shahid Afridi.”
“I used to be watching the ceiling until 5 am, I used to be not capable of sleep and I assumed my profession is over however this stuff are pure. Seniors gamers get round you, there’s a good workforce atmosphere proper now, I give the credit score to the captain and coach. The gamers study from their errors. So one should settle for his mistake, handle it and look ahead to being in that stress scenario as soon as once more,” he added.
