Srinagar: It was dream outing for Team India rookie pacer Arshdeep Singh at the biggest stage of World T20 Cricket as he got the prize scalps Pakistan skipper Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan at MCG.

Arshdeep gave India a big breakthrough as Pakistan lost their captain Babar Azam for a golden duck.

The left-arm pacer got the ball to swing into Babar on his very first delivery, catching him plumb in front of the stumps.

Though Babar decided to take the review, even the technology couldn’t come to his aid. Pakistan even went on to lose a review in the process.

Not long after, Arshdeep also sent Pakistan’s in-form wicket-keeper batter Mohammad Rizwan packing. On the final delivery of the 4th over, Arshdeep bowled a sharp bouncer to Rizwan which the batter tried to hook. But, the end result was the ball landing safe into the hands of Bhuvneshwar Kumar at fine leg.

In the process, Arshdeep got rid of Pakistan’s opening duo for cheap. After Babar departed without opening his account, Rizwan could only score 4 runs off 12 balls.
