Dubai, September 5: Young pacer Arshdeep Singh has fallen victim to online trolling after India's loss in the Asia Cup tie on Sunday, clearly pointing towards Pakistan's nefarious propaganda.

He is being trolled badly on social media for dropping a crucial catch in the 18th over of the match between India and Pakistan during Asia Cup 2022. However, from his seniors, to even political leaders cutting across party lines, all have come out in support of young pacer Arshdeep Singh.

However, Arshdeep has got ample support from his seniors, including Virat kohli, and even cutting across party lines.

"Even when I played my first game against Pakistan in Champions Trophy, I played a bad shot and got out. Anyone can make mistakes under pressure. It is natural to feel bad. The team environment is great right now, credit for this goes to management and captain. So one must accept his mistake, address it and look forward to being in that pressure situation once again," said Virat Kohli in a post-match press conference on Sunday. Virat Kohli is extremely satisfied and happy with his team's aggressive approach in T20Is and it is not shaken by wickets lost in middle overs.

"Quite unfortunate that Arshdeep Singh is being mocked over a dropped catch.

Such things happen in sports, particularly under such tremendous pressure. We must support and encourage our sports heroes. Arshdeep, don't get disheartened. You have a long and glorious career ahead," said Punjab's former CM in a Facebook post.
