Mohammad Rizwan and Mohammad Nawaz helped Pakistan finish on the winning side with their critical knocks against India in the second Super Four Asia cup 2022 match at the Dubai International Stadium on Sunday.
Although, Virat Kohli slammed his second consecutive fifty for India to post a competitive 181/7, Rizwan’s 71 out of 51 balls helped Pakistan win the match.
However, a crucial catch drop by Arshdeep Singh in the 18th over has not gone well with netizens. Many slammed him for dropping the important catch while others came out in his support. Had he taken the catch, Pakistan could have gone on back foot.
Twitteratis roasted the young pacer for dropping the sitter.
Take a look at some angry reactions.

#arshdeepsingh you let the match lose. First you,then Bhuvi. Shame on both. One can't catch and other does not know how to bowl the death overs. Both should be given the boot.— PARTHA SARATHI DASH (@partha_papu) September 4, 2022
