Jun 12, 2024 10:00 PM IST

Arshdeep Singh picked four wickets while conceding just 9 runs, creating a new Indian record at the T20 World Cup.

Arshdeep Singh produced a phenomenal performance in the match against USA at the T20 World Cup on Wednesday, registering brilliant figures of 4/9 in his four overs as the side restricted the home team to 110/8. Arshdeep made an instant impact as he bowled the opening over of the match, picking a wicket off his first delivery as he dismissed Shayan Jahangir leg-before.

He picked another wicket in the same over, removing wicketkeeper-batter Andries Gous on just two to give India an early boost after Rohit Sharma opted to bowl. With wickets continuing to fall at regular intervals, the USA side never had respite, and things only turned trickier when Arshdeep was brought back into the attack in the 15th over.

He removed the dangerous-looking Nitish Kumar (27), with Mohammed Siraj taking a brilliant catch at the deep midwicket boundary to cut short his innings. Nitish would eventually end up as the USA's highest scorer in the innings. Arshdeep added another dismissal to his name in his final over, removing Harmeet Singh for 10, finishing on commendable figures of 4/9 in his four overs.

With this, Arshdeep made a new Indian record, as he registered the best figures by an Indian bowler in T20 World Cup's history. Ravichandran Ashwin held the earlier record when he secured four wickets, conceding 11 runs during the 2014 T20 World Cup match against Australia in Mirpur.
