Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are taking part in the third game of the Super 12 stages of the 2021 T20 World Cup. The recent rivalry between the two teams seems to be continuing in this game, as well. In this article, we take a look at Sri Lankan pacer Lahiru Kumara’s wild throw that just missed the batsman’s head by a whisker.


Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka game has become an hot affair

In the Nidhas trophy, there was a spark in the rivalry between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Since then, there have been regular fights online, too. Hence, a heated affair was expected with the two teams meeting at the World Cup.

In the fourth over, Lahiru Kumara had a wild throw at the wickets, which missed the Bangladeshi opener, Mohammad Naim, just by a whisker. Had he not tried to get away from the path of the ball, he might have as well been hurt by it. Later, Kumara gave a send-off to Liton Das after taking his wicket and things went ugly. The other players were required to stop them from taking things further.

A few users pointed this out and also reacted to the incident. Here is a look at the throw by the pacer:

While it is okay to be competitive on the field, players must ensure that they don’t cross the line. Both Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have done well to reach this stage. A win for them is important in this encounter.
