The Indian cricket team pacers had a disastrous start in the second T20I against Sri Lanka in Pune on Thursday. Sri Lanka raced past 50 in the Powerplay as Kusal Medis and Pathum Nissaanka put Indian bowlers to the task. The Indian pacers were guilty of bowling too many no balls which resulted in quite a few free-hits. The highlight was, however, the second over bowled by Arshdeep Singh. The left-arm pacer, coming back after missing the first T20I, bowled three straight no balls. He conceded 19 runs in that over.
After that over, Twitter users were surprised with Arshdeep Singh’s display.
