Arshdeep Singh makes Suryakumar Yadav lose his temper following the IND vs SA match

Suryakumar Yadav, India's captain, expressed his displeasure with Arshdeep Singh following the conclusion of the third T20I in Johannesburg on December 14. Yadav was seen voicing his disgust against Arshdeep inside the team bus in a video uploaded on social networking platform X. The captain was noticeably agitated in the video, pointing fingers at the left-arm pacer before taking his seat. Although the precise reason for the incident is unknown, Arshdeep appeared to be discussing the problem as Yadav moved by him to his seat.


India won the third Twenty20 International against South Africa, tying the series at 1-1. Suryakumar Yadav's century and Kuldeep Yadav's five-wicket haul were vital to the team's victory. Arshdeep Singh, who concluded his two overs with stats of 1/13 in 3rd match, had earlier given 31 runs without taking a wicket in the second T20I, a rain-affected encounter won by South Africa using the DLS.

Arshdeep Singh will play in the three-match One-Day International series against South Africa, which begins on Sunday at the New Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.


Suryakumar Yadav has been excluded from India's team for the three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) following a poor performance with the bat in the 2023 World Cup.
