During the second match of Super 4 stage in the ongoing Asia Cup 2022, India pacer Arshdeep Singh found himself on the wrong side of mis-field in a crunch situation.
On the third delivery of the 18th over in the second innings, Pakistan batter Asif Ali tried to send the ball out of the park, but top-edged a slog off India leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi only to end up playing a nothing shot.
Arshdeep, fielding at short third man, dropped a sitter. Had he taken that catch, Pakistan could have gone on back foot in the chase and India would have got a grip on the game. It was not to be as Babar Azam & Co. won the contest by five wickets in hand.
Indian fans lost their cool on Arshdeep and brutally roasted the young seamer.
Former India batter Subramaniam Badrinath too took to Twitter to point out Arshdeep’s “lethargic” fielding effort at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. “Winning and Losing are a part of the sport, but the drop catch from Arshdeep was too lethargic,” he wrote.
