In the 45th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, Punjab Kings defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by 5 wickets in a thrilling match. With this win, there is a possibility of Punjab reaching the playoffs. Young fast bowler Arshdeep Singh bowled brilliantly for Punjab. He took three wickets for Punjab for 32 runs. He gave KKR a break through by dismissing Shubman Gill in the third over. Former India opener Virender Sehwag praised Arshdeep Singh for his clean bowling to Gill. He said that Arshdeep has the ability to benefit Team India with his superb bowling. He urged the BCCI to take care of him.
Sehwag said during the discussion on Cricbuzz, ‘This is a left-arm fast bowler typical bowling when the ball falls away from the off-stump and comes in. Arshdeep had said that he worked with Zaheer Khan for three days. If he can swing the ball by learning within three days, then you imagine what benefit he can do to Team India after spending some more time. BCCI should take care of him so that such talent does not go to waste.
He further said that Arshdeep is a tremendous bowler and if he keeps working hard and performing like this, then he will definitely play for Team India one day. Chasing a target of 166, KL Rahul scored a brilliant fifty. Shah Rukh Khan played an unbeaten knock of 22 runs in 9 balls in the last over, giving Punjab Kings a victory in the last over. After this win, Punjab has come at number 5 in the points table.
