Budding cricketers give T20 World Cup hero Arshdeep Singh heartwarming guard of honor

Arshdeep Singh has definitely enhanced his reputation as one of the best T20I bowlers in the world thanks to his heroics in the recently-concluded ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

With Mohammed Shami sidelined due to an injury, the onus was on Arshdeep Singh to deliver with the ball while partnering with the ever-reliable Jasprit Bumrah and he did not disappoint. In fact, he finished the tournament as the joint-highest wicket-taker as the Men in Blue went on to win the tournament.

The Rohit Sharma-led side beat South Africa by 7 runs in the final to win the T20 World Cup after a long gap of 17 years. India also became only the third team after West Indies and England to win the T20 World Cup twice.

Arshdeep Singh played a huge role in the triumph. He delivered with the ball throughout the competition as he not only picked crucial breakthroughs at different stages of the game but was also economical. He finished the tournament with 17 wickets from 8 games including the best figures of 4 wickets for 9 runs against the USA.

In the final against South Africa, Arshdeep conceded only 20 runs in his 4 overs and picked up 2 wickets. He also bowled the crucial 19th over when South Africa needed 20 runs and gave away only 4. Hardik Pandya went on to defend 15 runs in the final over to power India to a memorable win.

The players have been receiving a hero’s welcome wherever they are going since landing in India and Arshdeep has received the same treatment. After the victory parade in Mumbai, the pacer landed in Mohali amid great fanfare.

And recently, he received a guard of honor from budding cricketers at the Jaswant Rai Academy. The India star visited the academy to resume his training and the young cricketers paid tribute to him with a heartwarming gesture. The youngsters lined up on two sides and raised their bats in honor of the pacer.

Watch as the youngsters give Arshdeep Singh a guard of honor:

 

Arshdeep Singh is likely to be seen in action next later this month when Team India visit Sri Lanka for three ODIs and as many T20Is. The tour will kickstart with the T20I series. The three-match series will be played from July 27 to 30 while the ODIs will be played from August 2 to 7. Arshdeep is likely to be named in both the squads for the tour.
