Chandigarh, September 5
It is saddening to see how brutally Arshdeep Singh is being trolled even as cricketing fraternity has come out strongly in support of the left-arm pacer over his dropped catch of Pakistan batter Asif Ali during the Asia Cup Super-4 match.
To malign him, Twitter accounts from Pakistan called Arshdeep Singh a Khalistani and edited and fiddled with his Wikipedia page after he dropped the catch.

I grew up in India & traveled across its length n breath with family—everywhere us Sikhs were shown special courtesy n respect.

Meanwhile, the Punjab government has come in support of the cricketer.
Punjab Sports Minister Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer spoke in support of the cricketer. Meet Hayer extended government's full support to Arshdeep, after he spoke with his mother.
It was in the third ball of the 18th over when Pakistan needed 32 runs off 15 balls that Ali slog-swept leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi. But he got a thick top-edge, which flew towards short third man. Arshdeep, stationed there, put down the sitter as the ball went through his hands. If Arshdeep had taken the catch, Ali would have been out for a duck.
Eventually, Arshdeep trapped Ali lbw in the final over with a pin-point yorker. But by then, he had made 16 runs off eight balls. But with two needed off the last two balls, Pakistan won it as Iftikhar Ahmed got the needed runs with a drive down the ground.
