Youngster Arshdeep Singh showed great determination on Tuesday as he gave his all to defend seven runs in the final against Sri Lanka in the Asian Super Cup. He tried to take the game to the penultimate serve, but Sri Lanka eventually won the game with six mistakes. It is important to note that the left-handed athlete has come under a lot of criticism and ridicule on social media after he finished a relatively easy catch in the match against Pakistan, which India conceded 5 goals.
After the loss to Sri Lanka, captain Rohit Sharma spoke about Arshdeep’s mindset and how the youngster is quite confident and likes to launch in pressure situations.
He also said that the team doesn’t pay much attention to social media trolls.
“Honestly, people here don’t look too much on social media, there’s so much crap going on there these days,” Rohit Sharma said at the press conference.
“A few losses here and there, a few games here and there, and one drop, I don’t think we looked too much into it. Yeah, he himself was frustrated with that. the outcome could have been but again we saw confidence when he came and fought the last fight, he nailed that man very well and Asif Ali outside. So that goes to show, if he’s down and frustrated, if you don’t have the spirit there, the execution won’t happen,” he added.
“So in his case, he came out and he was pretty confident to execute. In fact, he just ran to his position and took the ball because he wanted it to be done. he’s bowling and even today, I think he’s bowling very well. He’s a very confident guy, that’s why he’s here. He’s been on the same team before a lot of guys. boys are sitting at home,” he added.
More on Arshdeep, Rohit said: “The reason is, it’s pretty simple, he’s very clear in his mind. He’s a confident guy, I haven’t seen that many guys in the early days. He’s very confident he wants to do well and he’s quite hungry for success That’s a good sign even Rahul Bhai will tell you we are very pleased with his approach and approach his game.”
Speaking of the game against Sri Lanka, Team India registered a total of 173/8 and Sri Lanka chased the target with six sticks in hand and a spare ball.
