In a breathtaking exhibition of swing bowling, Indian pacer Arshdeep Singh and Deepak Chahar got on the throat of South African batters and restricted them to 30 for five inside the PowerPlay at Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday, September 28.
This is India's third-best bowling performance inside PowerPlay in T20 Internationals. The fast bowling duo of Arshdeep and Deepak Chahar achieved the milestone in the first T20I of the three-match series against South Africa.
The best bowling performance in PowerPlay from Men in Blue came against Afghanistan in the latest edition of Asia Cup, where the swing master Bhuvneshwar Kumar and the young left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh ran riot to restrict Mohammad Nabi-led side to 21 for five after six overs.
The second-best bowling performance from team India in PowerPlay came against the Island Nation back in 2016 in Visakhapatnam, where the Blue Shirts had restricted Sri Lanka to 29 for five inside PowerPlay.

- 21/5 in six overs vs Afghanistan, 2022
