Wanindu Hasaranga applauds Rahul Chahar after his dismissal: Fans praise the Lankan’s Sportsmanship

Last night, India and Sri Lanka squared off against each other in the second T20 match of the ongoing series and it ended up to be pretty one sided due to the messed up situation of the Indian contingent. Indian all-rounder Krunal Pandya tested positive of COVID-19 two days ago and the second T20 therefore had to be postponed by one day. Moreover, as many as 9 Indian players, who were in close contact with Krunal Pandya, have been ruled out of the last two T20s following the COVID protocols. As a result, team India were not left with many options and Sri Lanka had an upper hand from the very beginning.

The Lankans might have won the match pretty convincingly, but there were specific moments in the match that made it memorable. Wanindu Hasaranga’s sportsman-spirit was definitely one of them. Sri Lanka were already at a winning position when Indian skipper sent Rahul Chahar to bowl the 14th over. He did not let his captain down and striked on the fifth bowl of the over. Facing Wanindu Hasaranga, he bowled a sensational off-spin which completely beat the Sri Lankan who was caught at the Gully by Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

However, what happened after the dismissal was special. Rahul Chahar was aggressive after picking up his first wicket of the night but Hasaranga’s reaction changed his mind.

A video clip of the incident got viral on social media and fans have praised Wanindu Hasaranga highly for his act of Sportsmanship.

With their victory in the second T20I, Sri Lanka have made the series 1-1 which automatically makes the third and final match a series decider.
