Thereafter, Singh kept things simple by keeping the same approach against the talented batter Anukul Roy. It was on the last ball of the second over, Arshdeep Singh pumped in another short-pitch delivery angled into the body of Roy. Consequently, he ended up missing the shot completely and ended up giving an easy catch to Zimbabwean Sikandar Raza.

But what transpired next was interesting. In a typical pacer’s attitude, Arshdeep Singh was seen giving Roy a ‘death stare’ while celebrating the dismissal as if issuing a warning for the rest of the season ahead and also indicating to not take him on early in the innings. So far, Singh has conceded just 9 runs in a couple of overs along with as many wickets to his name.

Notably, after winning the toss, KKR skipper Nitish Rana asked PBKS to bat first. However, a thrilling 86-run stand between skipper Shikhar Dhawan and Bhanuka Rajapaksa piloted the Punjab Kings to a huge total of 191/5. During the chase, the Afghan gloveman, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, provided a quick start in the first over to the visitors, but Arshdeep Singh’s fiery first over in the second over of the innings derailed KKR’s run chase.
