Unwanted records set by Indian Cricket Team in the 2nd T20I

Indian Cricket Team is always known to set some incredible records but this time during the IND vs SL 2nd T20 2023 match on 5th January 2023 at MCA Stadium Pune, Team India set some records that any team would always want to avoid. Team India messed up a lot with their bowling in the match while opting to field first doing the opposite of what is usually done.

In the second over only, Arshdeep Singh bowled a hat-trick of no balls, costing the team 14 runs in a single delivery. Arshdeep conceded 37 runs in just 2 overs of his bowling spell, including 5 no balls in the 12 balls, which is the worst bowling figure of his T20I career.
