The visitors made their first inroad in Tarouba thanks to Arshdeep Singh, a young Indian cricketer who surprised Kyle Mayers with a short-pitched delivery.
After seeking “sweet retribution” against a WI star in the first T20I, Arshdeep Singh sets Twitter into a frenzy with an epic death glare.
Even Punjab Kings congratulated their Arsh Paaji on this achievement via posting a heartfelt tweet for him:
Arsh paaji got another opportunity and he delivered. 💪💙”
For the unversed,
India decisively defeated the West Indies by 68 runs in the first Twenty20 International on Friday, July 29, at the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba, Trinidad, continuing their dominance against the visitors.
After winning the toss, Nicholas Pooran decided to bowl first in an effort to take advantage of the pitch’s dampness.
Suryakumar Yadav and Rohit Sharma unexpectedly opened the Mumbai pair’s innings, and they contributed 44 runs in 4.4 overs before the latter was out.
In just his second T20I, 23-year-old Arshdeep impressed in particular, taking 2/24 in four overs while dismissing Mayers and Akeal Hosein.
The latter was dismissed after being cleaned up by a magnificent yorker to which the left-hander had no response.
