7 things you missed | From Nuwan Pradeep picking up his cap instead of throwing the ball to Malinga getting frustrated
While you were sleeping till the final few overs of the match, you missed a ton of things that you might have missed even if you were watching the match between Sri Lanka and England. Don't worry, we have got your back! Sit back and enjoy the 7 things that you missed during the match!
Usually, we see fans getting their face painted with the team that they support! But today, we spotted this kid had 6 different country’s flags painted on his face and most probably had the rest on the other side. (including Ireland and Scotland of course).
No ball or a dead ball!
Moeen Ali was bowling to Angelo Mathews and the umpire called it a no ball, but Mathews pulled out of his stance as Moeen bowled and eventually it is called as a dead ball! Angelo Mathews just gave up 1 extra run and a free hit!
You have got to be kidding me!
Today Moeen Ali bowled 10 overs and he didn’t concede a single boundary. Speaks volumes of how bad the Sri Lankan batsmen were today!
Wizard in the house!
The wizard who slayed Nagini with Godric Gryffindor's Sword has come to watch the English team choke against Sri Lanka!
My cap is more important!
Nuwan Pradeep who was fielding at the boundary prioritised on watching his cap fall off his head over throwing the ball back to the middle! Hilarious!
The dropped catch got Malinga to go down on his knees!
Lasith Malinga was on his way to get 5 wickets and get the main threat Ben Stokes out but unfortunately, Kusal Mendis dropped an easy catch to which he was frustrated and went down on his knees! He couldn’t believe it! This would’ve been a major talking point had Sri Lanka lost this game!
Mother of Coincidence!
The last team to defeat England in an ODI at Headingley was also Sri Lanka in 2011. England won six consecutive ODIs since then until today where Sri Lanka broke their domination!
