Arshdeep's Shaheen-like celebration sparks India-Pakistan Twitter war in IPL 2023
Arshdeep Singh's celebration in IPL 2023, similar to Shaheen Afridi's, sparked a Twitter war between Indian and Pakistani cricket fans.
The Punjab Kings pacer's remarkable performance led to his team's victory in the opening match of IPL 2023 against the Kolkata Knight Riders.
He took three wickets, and his Shaheen-like celebration after taking the final wicket of Venkatesh Iyer,
who was looking dangerous, caught the attention of the fans.
Arshdeep spread his arms, kissed his fingers, and stood there in a pose similar to that of Pakistan's Shaheen Shah Afridi, triggering a Twitter war between Indian and Pakistani cricket fans.
Bhanuka Rajapaksa set the tone for the team's victory with a half-century,
and Punjab Kings won the game by seven runs after restricting Kolkata to 146-7 in 16 overs when rain stopped play.
The IPL 2023, the world's richest cricket tournament, will run until May 28 with 74 matches.
