Arshdeep First Indian To bowl hat-trick of no-ball in T20IS
First Indian To bowl: Sri Lanka’s second T20I innings is in its nineteenth over. A full throw by Dasun Shanaka has sent directly to Suryakumar Yadav at long-on. Hardik Pandya, the captain of India, is rejoicing, though, as his face is buried in his hands. The explanation is that Arshdeep Singh went too far.
That was the fourth no-ball of the game for Arshdeep. Shanaka added insult to injury by hitting the ensuing free throw for a six. After missing two balls, Arshdeep erred once more. When Shanaka received the reprieve, he was on 30 off of 14. He later scored an unbeaten 56 off 22 to push his team over the 200-point mark.
The other half-centurion in the innings, Kusal Mendis, was able to escape earlier thanks to Arshdeep’s no-balls. Sri Lanka got 7 for no loss after 1.5 overs of play, with Mendis having dismissed three times on the previous four balls he faced.

Mendis took advantage of the free hits, scoring a four and a six to help Sri Lanka get underway with a 19-run over after Arshdeep bowled three consecutive no-balls.
Despite being the attack’s spearhead this series, Arshdeep seemed to lose the captain’s confidence following that over and called back until the 19th over. Umran Malik forced to bowl the 18th over, which is outside of his comfort zone. His quick pace, which is otherwise his strongest asset, turns into a detriment at the end of the game as batters swing their bats erratically because he hasn’t mastered the yorker. Malik spilled 21 during that round.
After Hamish Rutherford, he is currently the second bowler. From a full member nation of the ICC to bowl five no-balls in a T20I. Kusal Mendis, the opening batsman for Sri Lanka, made matters worse by taking advantage of the free hits and blasting a four and a six.
Arshdeep only bowled two overs, but within those two overs. He let up 37 runs as Sri Lanka rallied to score 206 runs in the first innings. On Thursday at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Sri Lanka’s captain Dasun Shanaka, Charith Asalanka, and Kusal Mendis battled back against India to post 206/6 in the second T20I of the three-match series.
