  • Something similar happened with Chetan Sharma in 1986

Arshdeep SinghIndian bowler Arshdeep Singh missed a crucial catch in the Asian Cup ‘Super 4’ match against Pakistan. It was the capture of Asif Ali that India had to bear the brunt of the defeat. The matter wasn’t just resolved at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, there was a lot of buzz on social media. Incredible things were also spoken to the Indian pitcher. At the same time, from former cricketers to politicians also supported him. The Arshdeep controversy also reignited that controversy 36 years ago when Chetan Sharma, the current chief selector of the Indian cricket team, was severely trapped.

In fact, something similar happened with the Indian fast pitcher Chetan Sharma in 1986 and the special thing is that the match was also against Pakistan. Not only this, it was also the final match of the tournament where India was defeated. Chetan Sharma was a young bowler at the time and after this Austral-Asian Cup match he too was very scared. All these things make it clear why the India-Pakistan match is called a high voltage match.

What was that?

We tell you that this is about the final match of the Austral-Asian Cup played in the United Arab Emirates in 1986. This match was being played in Sharjah and the match ended in a very exciting twist. Playing here first, India had scored 245 for 7 in the stipulated 50 overs. In response, Javed Miandad marked a brilliant century for Pakistan. The game reached the last ball and the ball was in the hands of Chetan Sharma. The excitement level was at its peak and Pakistan needed 4 runs to win the last ball.

At that time, Chetan Sharma, the successful pitcher who took three wickets in this match, did everything right and only had to save the limit on the last ball. He tried to throw a yorker, but instead of the yorker, the ball was completely thrown and Miandad drove it right across the boundary for a six. Javed Miandad was then called the ‘maharajah of Sharjah’ and scored an undefeated 116 to guide Pakistan to title victory. In those days of Doordarshan there was only normal coverage, but even then Chetan Sharma had to face heavy criticism. Even then Chetan was quite scared by this.

Now, in 2022, Asif Ali fired a shot into the air and Arshdeep dropped the catch. Disappointment was everywhere, but to criticize the young player like this is not right in the slightest. There was a gap of 36 years between these two matches, but the viewers could not accept even a simple human error, this became clear. For the time being, we can now hope that Sunday’s missed catch error won’t have a deep impact on the 23-year-old Arshdeep Singh’s mind. He should learn from the current coach (Chetan Sharma) how to come back.

Arshdeep is also expected to return as Chetan.

Chetan then took five wickets in the Lord’s Test and later became the first Indian to do so by scoring a hat-trick at the 1987 World Cup. His record was broken by Mohammed Shami after 32 years in the World Cup. 2019. Arshdeep Singh’s story could be similar. He is a very good fast bowler with his left arm. Despite this incident, he threw the last pitch and even under pressure, chewed up the gram to make Pakistan 7 runs. He also took Asif Ali’s wicket in this position, but India could not win. I hope this bowler from Punjab will come back with a bang and forget this dark chapter and bring many new golden memories to the world.
