The Central government on Monday summoned Wikipedia executives to seek explanation on how team India pacer Arshdeep Singh’s Wikipedia page entry showing pacer’s alleged links with Khalistani movement.

Key details in his Wikipedia page changed to term him as Khalistani. However, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology believes that it could cause disharmony in India and could also led the cricketer’s family into trouble.

The Wikipedia edited entry about Arshdeep Singh, who had dropped catch on the third ball of Ravi Bishnoi’s 18th over, was changed after India’s five-wicket loss to Pakistan in Asia Cup on Sunday.

The 23-year-old Punjab Kings pacer received flak from the cricket fans on social media for dropping Asif Ali’s catch in the 18th over of the Super 4 clash against Pakistan. He was brutally trolled by a section of social media users for the mistake he committed in a pressure situation.

An anonymous user replaced the words India with Khalistan at several locations on the profile minutes after India were beaten by Pakistan. Also, the name of the cricketer was changed twice while several changes were made to his cricket stats.

However, these changes were undone within 15 minutes by Wikipedia editors.

Criticising the way Arshdeep has been trolled for the dropped catch, Punjab Education Minister Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer said regressive psyche to troll him for dropping just a catch.
In an attempt to cheer up pacer, Hayer said Arshdeep is future of the nation. Inspiration for youth. Hate has no place in sports, he said.

Responding to the criticism of her son’s performance in last night’s match, Arshdeep’s mother said even Virat Kohli had a slump in the previous matches and he just got back to form. She has asked him (Arshdeep) to return with the Cup, she said.

Former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh also comes in support of young Indian pacer and said quite unfortunate that Arshdeep Singh is being mocked at for a dropped catch. Such things happen in sports, particularly under such tremendous pressure, he wrote in a Facebook post

The Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant reached an incredible milestone on Friday as he became the third-youngest player to reach 3,000 runs in the Indian Premier League (IPL). In his team’s second win of the year over the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), the left-hander smashed an incredible 41 runs off of 24 balls. The 2020 runners-up also moved up from the bottom of the rankings to the ninth slot with this win.

With the final delivery of the 12th over, Pant reached the milestone when he hit Marcus Stoinis for a four. He showcased an impressive range of shots, such as his leg play and scoops over third man. After Virat Kohli and Shubman Gill, the skipper of DC was the third-youngest player to surpass 30,000 runs.

Surprisingly, among the 25 batters who have scored more than 3,000 runs, he has the third-highest strike rate (148.4), just behind AB De Villiers (151.68) and Chris Gayle (148.96).

After Kuldeep Yadav returned, the DC bowlers did a fantastic job of destroying the LSG batting lineup at 94/7 with three wickets taken. But teenager Ayush Badoni’s bravery, who scored 55 off 35 deliveries, helped the Super Giants put up a respectable 167/7 total on the board.

The DC batters took over at that point and led this run-chase without any problem. In the seventh over, having lost both of their openers at 63 runs, debutant Jake Fraser-McGurk teamed up with Rishabh Pant to register his first-ever IPL half-century. Fraser-McGurk hit 4 fours and 5 sixes in his 55 runs for 35 balls. Meanwhile, KL Rahul stumped Rishabh Pant off a delivery from Ravi Bishnoi as he was very close to his half-century at 41.

However, the duo had contributed to making sure DC would easily meet the target; they also became the first team to beat Lucknow this year by successfully chasing a total of more than 160 runs.
