In yet another nail-biting contest, India on Tuesday was defeated by Sri Lanka in a must-win match by 6 wickets in Dubai. With back-to-back defeats in Asia Cup 2022 group matches, India is now standing on the brink of elimination. While many cricket experts are saying the Asia Cup 2022 debacle was a great wake-up call for the Indian team, fans are not happy with the way the 'Men in Blue' performed on the field. India's loss against Pakistan on Sunday has still not wet well for the fans, especially Arshdeep Singh's 'vital' drop catch of Asif Ali. Following India vs Sri Lanka Asia Cup 2022 match, Arshdeep Singh on Tuesday yet again faced the hate of a fan. In fact, Arsheep Singh was accused by a fan of dropping the catch of Asif Ali deliberately.
The shameful incident took place when Team India players were boarding the bus outside the stadium after the loss against Sri Lanka. In the Arshdeep Singh angry viral video, it can be seen when the 23-year-old speedster was on his way out boarding the bus in the presence of fans and media persons, an 'insane' fan started hurling abuses and stated that he had deliberately dropped the catch of Pakistani player Asif Ali which ultimately became the deciding factor at the end of India vs Pakistan match.
Listening to the shameful remarks, Arshdeep Singh paused for a bit and angrily stared at the fan for coming up with such insensitive comments. Arshdeep Singh has been facing a lot of heat on social media ever since he has dropped the catch against Pakistan. In fact, many Pakistan-based social media accounts had started the trending 'Khalistani' in order to label the young speedster 'Anti-India'. Moreover, Arshdeep Singh's Wikipedia page was also vandalized by an unidentified person in which the 23-year-old speedster was labeled as 'Khalistani'. Later, the IP address was traced to Pakistan which had vandalized Arshdeep Singh's Wikipedia page.
