Thiruvananthapuram. Coming back with a bang in the three-match T20I series against South Africa, young Indian pacer Arshdeep Singh put the South African batting on the backfoot by taking three wickets in his very first over. Arshdeep Singh, who brought the second over of the match, bowled Quinton de Kock, caught Riley Russo behind the wicket and showed the way to the pavilion by hitting David Miller in the last ball. In his sensational over, he got two batsmen bowled and one batter caught out.
In the second ball of Arshdeep over, De Kock was hit with an off cutter. De Kock tried to cut the back off length ball outside off stump and took the ball inside edge and scattered his stumps. After this, on the fifth ball of the over, Arshdeep got Russo caught behind the wicket. Russo teased the very first ball going outside off-stump and after hitting the edge of the bat, taking the outside edge, went into Pant’s safe gloves.

After Russo, Arshdeep got the third and hat-trick wicket of Miller. It felt as if the South African batsmen knelt in front of Arshdeep. Miller missed the ball coming in completely and his middle stump was uprooted.

Was grieved for missing a catch in Asia Cup
Arshdeep also caught Stubbs off Deepak Chahar in the next over and contributed to the fifth wicket. After this, Arshdeep left behind the failure in the Asia Cup. Arshdeep was also economical in bowling in the Asia Cup, but he faced a lot of criticism for missing a catch against Pakistan. But young left-arm fast bowler Arshdeep showed in the first match against Africa that he can do wonders if he keeps getting his chances.
