Laughing at all these tweets…"- Arshdeep Singh opens up on the troll for the drop catch

Young Indian pacer Arshdeep Singh contacted his parents after India vs Pakistan match of the Super 4 stage in the Asia Cup where he dropped a sitter that eventually put the match in Pakistan's favour.

India took on Pakistan in the Super 4 stage of the Asia Cup. India was put into bat first and scored 181 runs with the help of Virat Kohli's magnificent 60-run knock. But it was not enough to save the day for the Blues. 

Md. Rizwan guided the team to the victory with help of Md Nawaz and Asif Ali's cameo.  But the turning point of the match came in the 18th over. Asif went for a slog sweep on Ravi Bishnoi's delivery but mistimed it. But Arshdeep drops a dolly at short third man. Eventually, Asif took the team over the victory line.

After this incident trolls had been started on the young pacer from all over the country. But many former cricketers came to support Arsh. 

Reaction of Arshdeep's parents:

But now Arshdeep's parents open up about how he felt about all the trolls.

Arshdeep's father Darshan said, "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," in the Indian Express newspaper.

He further added,"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. Some stand by you no matter what and others can't digest a single loss. But at the end of the day, only one team can win."

Arshdeep told us that the whole Indian team is supporting him," said his mother Baljeet. 

Even Virat Kohli took back the 23-years old pacer and 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."
