Arshdeep Singh’s parents offered their son and the entire India squad words of love and encouragement after India’s five-wicket loss to Pakistan in the upcoming Asia Cup 2022.

When Arshdeep failed to make the key catch of Asif Ali during the India-Pakistan Asia Cup 2022 match, he was the target of harsh online mocking.

“People’s jobs are to talk. They criticize a player because they care about him and want him to succeed. We are taking it favorably (comments on the internet). We were hoping that Arshdeep would put a stop to those two runs. Dropped catches are unavoidable in the game. But he made amends in the next over “She continued.
