Virat Kohli, an Indian batsman, has defended Arshdeep Singh, a young seamer who dropped a catch during Pakistan’s 18th over of the chase.
In the ongoing Asia Cup, India and Pakistan engaged in another thrilling match, with Pakistan emerging victorious in the Super 4 stage by a margin of five wickets. The match’s balance changed frequently up until the very last ball, and in the end, it came down to who could control their nerves the best.
In the 18th over of the innings, young seamer Arshdeep Singh mishandled a seemingly simple change ball off the bowling of Ravi Bishnoi, giving Asif Ali a significant respite. Pakistan eventually won the game by five wickets after that. Arshdeep Singh, a teenage seamer who lost a catch in Pakistan’s 18th over of the chase, has been defended by Indian batsman Virat Kohli.
“Anyone may make the error; the circumstances were difficult. There was a lot riding on this game, so mistakes may happen. I clearly recall that I made a terrible shot against Shahid Afridi during my maiden Champions Trophy game versus Pakistan. I couldn’t sleep and was up till five in the morning staring at the ceiling, thinking that my career was ended, but these things are normal “In a post-game press conference, Kohli remarked.
“Senior players will surround you; the current team dynamic is positive, and I commend the captain and coach for that. The athletes gain knowledge from their errors. Therefore, one must acknowledge their error, take appropriate action, and look forward to the next time they are under pressure “Added he.
With Khushdil Shah and Asif Ali at the crease, Pakistan required 34 runs in the 18th over, which was bowled by Ravi Bishnoi. When Asif played a sweep shot on the third delivery, the ball sailed into the air and appeared to be an easy catch for Arshdeep. However, fate had different ideas, and Asif Ali lived after the ball passed through his hands.
For India, one wicket apiece was taken by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya, Ravi Bishnoi, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Arshdeep Singh.
