Arshdeep Singh broke the stumps and the hearts of the Mumbai Indians team with a splendid performance in the ultimate over at the Wankhede Stadium. Defending 16 off the last over, Arshdeep displayed a death bowling masterclass to help Punjab Kings breach the fortress of the Mumbai Indians. He kept quiet the reputed Tim David and in form, Tilak Varma displaying great courage and clarity of thoughts while implementing the plan.
With 15 needed off 3 balls, Punjab Kings Arshdeep bowled a pinpoint accurate yorker to uproot and break the stumps off Tilak Verma. The stump was broken into pieces and so were MI shattered as the match was taken away from them by the 24-year-old pacer. Nehal came at the crease with 15 needed off 2 as the Impact Player. Arshdeep broke the stumps again with a pacy yorker at the stumps.
Punjab left armer narrowly missed the hat trick. He again bowled an accurate yorker to Jofra Archer which was just inches away from the off stump. On the last ball, MI could just score 1 run as Arshdeep just gave 2 runs in the final over.
The reliable Arshdeep just gave 11 runs in his last 2 overs and also took 3 wickets. You need someone with a calm head in such high-scoring thrillers and of course some experience as well. Arshdeep had previously been on the receiving end, but he now had a chance to make amends. The game’s pivotal moment occurred when Arshdeep Singh paused before delivering the fourth ball off the 18th over, despite the fact that the wickets total and method of the dismissals may have made you gasp. Before bowling his first ball to Mumbai’s number 4, he was under extreme pressure after giving up six runs off the opening ball. By that point, SKY had lit off his quickest IPL fifty and was in no mood to back down. Arshdeep dismissed SKY by going around the wicket and prevented SKY from having space on both sides.
