The ball hit the middle stump with such force that it snapped it in half, sending Verma back to the pavilion. The young pacer put in a stellar bowling performance, finishing with figures of 4 wickets for 29 runs in his four overs.
Chasing a target of 214 runs, Mumbai Indians were cruising at one stage with skipper Cameron Green and Suyakumar Yadav at the crease. However, Punjab’s bowlers fought back and took crucial wickets, which put the pressure back on Mumbai’s middle-order batsmen
With just 15 runs needed in the last over, the pressure was on Mumbai to score big in the last few balls of the match. However, Arshdeep’s outstanding bowling had put the opposition in a commanding position. Mumbai’s chances of winning the match had significantly reduced, and it was now an uphill task for them to score the required runs.
Arshdeep Singh’s impressive bowling performance proved to be a game-changer in this match. He demonstrated his skill and composure under pressure, which helped his team to secure a crucial win.
