Arshdeep Singh and Deepak Chahar were on fire in the first T20I against South Africa.

Cricketer Arshdeep Singh’s Wikipedia page entry was edited to add his association with Khalistan after India’s defeat to Pakistan in the Super 4 stage of the Asia Cup 2022.

The IT Ministry of the Indian government has summoned top Wikipedia officials to seek an explanation on how the change took place.

A high-level panel will probe the matter and will seek details from Wikipedia over the entire incident. Sources said the IT ministry might also issue Wikipedia a show-cause notice.

Arshdeep Singh had dropped a catch of Asif Ali in the 18th over of Pakistan’s innings, leading to online trolling. Some of the fans even crossed the line and called him Khalistani.

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli scored 60 off 44 balls, which took India’s score to 181/ 7 in 20 overs. Rohit Sharma-led team could have easily scored more than 200 runs, but some reckless shots from the middle-order batters restricted India to a below-par total.

Chasing 182 to win, Pakistan survived the early hiccups with Mohammad Rizwan and Mohammad Nawaz leading the charge. After their dismissal, the lower middle order players hit some sublime shots to seal the game in Pakistan’s favor.
