It was a terrific performance by Arshdeep Singh in the final over against MI to give a win for his team. He also broke stumps twice in the last over, thanks to his exceptional bowling. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as Arshdeep Singh breaks stumps twice in the last over against Mumbai Indians.
A fine win for Punjab Kings
With the way they started, it appeared difficult for the Punjab Kings would win the game. However, Sam Curran and Jitesh Sharma stepped up with the bat and pulled PBKS to a score above 200. With this target, unless there was a ridiculous show by the MI batters, PBKS was in the driver’s seat.
It almost came close to happening. The MI batters were in top form, especially the likes of Cameron Green and Suryakumar Yadav. Both the players hit their fifties and were looking dangerous for Punjab. Even Tim David hit a few big shots to take MI close to the record chase. However, Arshdeep did not let that happen as he defended 16 runs in the last over to close the game for his side.
Despite the absence of some key stars such as Shikhar Dhawan and Kagiso Rabada, PBKS has actually been doing well. Even against RCB, they seemed in control of the chase and if not for the fall of wickets regularly, they could have pulled off the chase. Nevertheless, the win against MI will give confidence to the team for the rest of the campaign.

Arshdeep Singh was yet to deliver a solid show in IPL 2023. He did that against MI. In the final two overs at the death, he bowled well against Tim David and SKY to make the target difficult for the hosts. In the last over, he was at his best as his firing deliveries broke the stumps twice.

Batters make umpires bring new balls after sixes. Arshdeep went one step ahead and making them bring stumps.Advertisement
