India's titular clash against arch-rivals Pakistan got off to a rollicking start after the young Indian fast-bowling sensation Arshdeep Singh rocked the Men in Green with two huge blows inside the powerplay. Arshdeep sent Babar Azam packing on a golden duck before getting rid of the impregnable Mohammad Rizwan in his next over. The youngster was seen styling his moustache after his scintillating opening spell.
Indian skipper Rohit Sharma called it right at the toss and decided to bowl first in the high-octane encounter in front of a sold-out crowd at the MCG. The sun shone brightly for the first time in a while as Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled a superb opening over, troubling the in-form Mohammad Rizwan.
But it was the young Indian left-arm quick Arshdeep Singh who had Pakistan in a tangle after dismissing skipper Babar Azam for a golden duck on his very first delivery in World Cup. He joined Vijay Shankar and Pragyan Ojha in a short list of Indian players who started their World Cup career with a wicket on their first delivery.
He then returned in the next over to send back the dangerous Mohammad Rizwan with a well-directed short delivery. His opening spell with the new ball put India on top in the initial part of the innings. The youngster, who was on the receiving end of some unwarranted abuse and criticism after his pivotal drop catch against the arch-rivals cost India dearly in the Asia Cup clash earlier this year, was seen styling his moustache after that splendid opening spell.

The prodigious left-arm pacer got rid of the hard-hitting Asif Ali in the latter stages of the innings with another vicious short ball that hurried the batter. Arshdeep finished with impressive bowling figures of 3/32 on his World Cup debut in a high-pressure match against nemesis Pakistan.
