The Bangladesh-Sri Lanka match means there is a chance to see more things besides cricket. As at the Delhi ground on Monday, timed out was seen for the first time in international cricket. But apart from that, there are three other dramas around that match.
Sri Lankan cricketers were furious ever since Angelo Mathews was timed out. That impression came after Bangladesh came down to bat. Liton Das was batting then. In the third over, Liton pulled a muscle while hitting a pull shot. He sat on the ground. Physio came to the field. Litton recovered and started batting again. But after a few overs, the same thing happened again. Physio of Bangladesh team came to the field again. Sri Lankan cricketers are annoyed because this is happening again and again. Under the leadership of Mathews, the rest of the Sri Lankan cricketers started talking to the umpire Marius Erasmus again and again. The Matthews reminded him of the times.

Several times Bangladesh’s Nazmul Hossain Shanto and Sri Lanka’s Sadira Samaravikram were seen arguing on the field. Mathews took the ball as Shakib Al Hasan came to bat. The Sri Lankan all-rounder is seen saying something to Shakib. However, the Bangladesh captain did not say anything. But early on, Mathews had a chance to take Shakib’s wicket. But Asha Lank dropped the catch. However, it was Mathews who took Shakib’s wicket in the end. The Sri Lankan all-rounder clocked him out.
Even after the match, the debate raged. The players of the two teams did not shake hands. Usually at the end of the match the umpire and the players of the two teams shake hands with each other. That is the custom. But while the players shook hands with the umpires on Monday, Bangladesh and Sri Lankan cricketers did not shake hands against each other.
