Arshdeep Singh IND vs SL: Many of the Indian fast bowlers are struggling with injuries in the recent while like Jasprit Bumrah, Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini, Prasidh Krishna and a few others as well. India sustained a disappointing blow when their premier pace bowler Arshdeep Singh was not available for the first T20I match against Sri Lanka on Tuesday. However, the Men in Blue eventually ended up defending 162 runs on the Mumbai wicket and registered an incredible 2-run victory. The Indian team have picked up a 1-0 lead in the three-match T20I series.

Just after the toss, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) provided an official update that Arshdeep Singh was not available for selection in the IND vs SL 1st T20I as he was suffering from illness. However, the recent reports suggest that the good news is that the left-arm pacer has completely recovered from illness and absolutely fit for the upcoming second T20I encounter against Sri Lanka on Thursday. The Indian team management will now have to take the big decision as to who will sit out because Arshdeep is very much likely expected to straightaway walk back into the playing XI.
After having conceded as many as 41 runs in his quota of 4 overs with two crucial wickets, right-arm pacer Harshal Patel is very much likely to be dropped. On the other hand, Shivam Mavi registered brilliant figures of 4 for 22 in his debut T20I encounter.
