Asia Cup 2022: Arshdeep Singh trolled after dropping Asif Ali in India vs Pakistan game
Asia Cup 2022: The Super Four round game of the ongoing Asia Cup turned out to be the most recent of the last over thrillers that India and Pakistan have been delivering. Pakistan was able to maintain composure and completed the 182 run innings with just one ball remaining. Even though the Men in Green batted brilliantly throughout the intense chase, Asif Ali’s dropped catch from Arshdeep Singh ultimately proved to be the game’s crucial moment.
When Ravi Bishnoi was bowling the 18th over of the game, the incident took place. The flighted delivery Asif Ali attempted to slog sweep barely yielded a top edge. The man who calmly slid under the ball was Arshdeep. But unexpectedly, and much to everyone’s disappointment, the left-arm pacer dropped the catch.
Take a look:
Arshdeep is the Hassan Ali of Team India!

The ball probably passed right through his hands because he probably took it too lightly. The Indian team members in the middle, along with the rest of the crowd, all had their hands on their heads. Rohit Sharma wasn’t happy with the effort made by Arshdeep Singh. Asif Ali ended up scoring 16 runs off of 8 balls at that crucial point of the game, which was significant in the context of the game.
After missing the catch from Asif Ali, Arshdeep Singh must have been under a lot of strain. But when Rohit gave the young man the assignment to bowl the last over, the boy excelled. Despite giving up a boundary off the second ball, he maintained his composure to bowl a few dot balls and remove Asif Ali with a magnificent yorker. The next batter was Iftikhar Ahmed. With one ball remaining, his team took the match by five wickets.
