Team India had to face defeat against Pakistan. Indian right-wing trolls are blaming fast bowler Arshdeep Singh as the biggest villain for the defeat of the Indian team in the Indo-Pak match. In the Asia Cup Super 4 encounter, Pakistan won the match by 5 wickets.
At the same time, a mistake of Arshdeep Singh is being said to be the reason for the defeat of the Indian team in this match. In the 18th over of the Pakistan innings, Arshdeep dropped the catch of Pakistani batsman Asif Ali in Ravi Bishnoi’s over.

In the very next over, Asif Ali snatched the match from the jaws of Team India by hitting a six at long on off Bhuvneshwar Kumar. After this Asif Ali went on score 18 runs off 8 balls and brought the match completely in favor of Pakistan.
Some Indian fans are unable to digest this defeat and are blaming Arshdeep Singh who then tried to win Team India in the last over.
‘Khalistani’, ‘Traitor’, ‘Pakistani Agent’ were among the hate tweets that were hurled at the fast bowler from Punjab.
A popular right-wing handle ‘Delhi Se Hoon BC’ posted a picture written “gaddar” on it. The tweet is now deleted.
On trolling Arshdeep, a fan tweeted that it is difficult to live in India. If you are Muslim then you are Pakistani and if you are Sikh then you are called Khalistani.
However Arshdeep Singh received a lot of support from fans on Twitter after he came under criticism for dropping a simple catch to dismiss Asif Ali. The young bowler dropped a sitter to dismiss the dangerous right-hander, who eventually went on to hit some crucial runs in Pakistan’s five-wicket victory over India.
