In the second T20I of the series against Sri Lanka, Team India got off to a bad start as the opening pair of Kusal Mendis and Pathum Nissanka only scored 80 runs in 8.2 overs. However, an odd turn of events occurred in the game’s second over when left-armer Arshdeep Singh let up a hat-trick of no-balls to end the over. Sunil Gavaskar, a former captain of India, expressed his displeasure with the bowlers for repeatedly overstepping the line in an abrasive way on television after Shivam Mavi again delivered a no-ball in the fourth over.

“You can’t be doing this as a professional, Today’s athletes often use the phrase “things aren’t in our control.” You have control over no ball during bowling. Another factor is what the batter does after you deliver the ball. During his time as a Star Sports commentator, Gavaskar observed, “Not bowling a no ball is completely within your control.

In T20 Internationals, Arshdeep Singh set an unfavorable record by being the first Indian bowler to bowl a hat-trick of no-balls. Ultimately, the left-armer surrendered 19 runs off of his opening over, allowing a six and a four off of two of the three free hits. Amazingly, Arshdeep exceeded the boundary three times in T20Is, increasing his no-ball total to 12.

India leads the three-match series 1-0 after registering a close 2-run win in the opening game in Mumbai. Earlier, Hardik Pandya had won the toss and chosen to bowl in Pune.

The three-match ODI series will see the big three of India, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul, return to play before the T20I series begins. Rahul has been replaced as the team’s vice-captain for the series by Hardik Pandya.
