Much like the World T20 match against India, Bangladesh once again started to celebrate a bit too soon in their ongoing Test match against Sri Lanka at Galle. Bowler Subashis Roy was elated when he had Kusal Mendis caught in the deep only to find out that the fielder had crossed the boundary.
Bangladesh’s plight was perhaps best surmised by the comical scene in the 95th over bowled by Subashis Roy. A well-directed short ball took the top edge of Kusal’s bat and Mustafizur Rahman at fine-leg took the catch but stepped over the boundary ropes in his effort. However, bowler Subashis Roy, who did notice this, started celebrating the wicket prematurely. The bowler was elated and raised both his hands in celebration, while the umpire did the same in the background only to signal a six. Kusal could not help but smile at the gaffe.
