SA vs IND: [WATCH] Arshdeep Singh’s Remarkable First Over Shakes South Africa

Arshdeep Singh made a significant impact in the initial over, setting the tone for the first match of the ODI series between India and South Africa at the New Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg. Opting to bat first after winning the toss, South Africa faced an unexpected setback as Arshdeep swiftly claimed two wickets in the opening over of his spell.

In a remarkable display of bowling prowess, Arshdeep clean bowled Reeza Hendricks on the fourth ball of his over, preventing Hendricks from scoring any runs. Without relenting, Arshdeep continued his assault by dismissing Rassie van der Dussen on the very next ball, securing an LBW dismissal and denying him the opportunity to open his account. This feat left South Africa reeling with two consecutive wickets falling in the span of two deliveries.

Arshdeep’s stellar performance bore resemblance to Irfan Pathan’s historic hat-trick in a test match against Pakistan in 2005. While Arshdeep missed the hat-trick, South African captain Aiden Markram thwarted the possibility. As of the latest update, South Africa stands at 20 runs for the loss of two wickets in 5.4 overs. Debutants Sai Sudarshan for India and Nandre Berger for South Africa are making their mark in this crucial encounter.
