In the second T20I of the three-match series against Ireland, Indian pacer Arshdeep Singh showcased his prowess by reaching a significant milestone. With a total of 50 T20I wickets to his name, he solidified his position as the second-fastest Indian bowler to achieve this feat. Arshdeep's remarkable journey has taken just 33 matches to reach this impressive milestone.

Arshdeep Singh's impact was palpable during the 14th over. While he initially faced the challenge after being hit for a six by Andrew Balbirnie, he swiftly turned the tables. In a remarkable display of skill, Arshdeep dismissed Balbirnie in the very next ball. 

The Irish batsman, who had scored 72 runs off 51 balls, was caught behind, marking a crucial breakthrough for the Indian side.

Singh's display not only clinched a crucial wicket for India but also underscored his escalating prominence as a formidable fast bowler in T20Is. As the left-hander attains the milestone of 50 T20I wickets, Arshdeep marked his T20I debut against England in July 2022, becoming the eighth Indian to achieve the 50-wicket mark in T20 internationals.

India emerged victorious in the 2nd T20I against Ireland by 33 runs in the match held in Dublin.
