“Arshdeep had taken all the criticism on the chin and was upbeat. “His exact words were, ‘I am laughing at all these tweets and messages. I am only going to take positives from it. This incident has only given me more confidence’,” Darshan, Arshdeep’s father told the Indian Express newspaper. “Arshdeep told us that the whole Indian team is supporting him.”

However, the biggest talking point of the game between India and Pakistan was in the 18th over of Pakistan’s innings as Arshdeep Singh dropped a relatively easy catch off the bowling of Ravi Bishnoi and Asif Ali got a life. Arshdeep then came on to bowl the final over, but he failed to defend seven runs, and in the end, Pakistan wonn the game.

“As a parent, it feels really bad. He is only 23. I don’t want to say much about trolls. You can’t shut everyone’s mouth. Without fans, there is no game. There are some who stand by you no matter what and others who can’t digest a single loss. But at the end of the day, only one team can win,” said Arshdeep’s father Darshan.

Meanwhile, at the post-match press conference, India batter Virat Kohli backed Arshdeep, saying that mistakes can happen from anyone in high-pressure games as well. He said: “Anyone can commit the mistake, the situation was tight. It was a high-pressure game and mistakes can happen. I still remember I was playing my first Champions Trophy and the match was against Pakistan, I had played a very bad shot against Shahid Afridi.”

“I was watching the ceiling till 5 am, I was not able to sleep and I thought my career is over but these things are natural. Seniors players get around you, there is a good team environment right now, I give the credit to the captain and coach. The players learn from their mistakes. So one must accept his mistake, address it and look forward to being in that pressure situation once again,” he further added.
