    IND vs SL: Is Arshdeep Singh Playing Today’s India vs Sri Lanka match? Here’s the update

    Cricket is surely a game full of uncertainties and the pressure is always massive in any India vs Pakistan encounter as witnessed over the years. 23-year-old left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh recently faced huge criticism after he dropped a simple catch of Pakistani batsman Asif Ali in the penultimate 18th over of the run-chase that eventually proved to be very much costly for the Men in Blue. However, the youngster did not boil down under pressure and bowled a fine last over where he also dismissed Asif with a brilliant yorker delivery but India ended up losing the game after experienced bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar leaked a total of 19 runs in the 19th over. Just after the game, the social media was flooded with abuses and poor remarks for Arshdeep which was seriously intolerable. The whole cricketing fraternity have come forward in the pace bowler’s support as dropping catches is part and parcel of the game.

    India is scheduled to face Sri Lanka on 6 September, 2022 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai and Arshdeep Singh is certain to be part of the playing 11. In the match against Pakistan, he finished with figures of 1 for 27 in his 3.5 overs that too in a high-scoring encounter. The Indian pacer will be looking forward to silence his critics with a brilliant performance in a must-win game against Sri Lanka on Tuesday.
