Fierce competition among Sri Lankan players
During the Indian innings, there was a fierce fight between the Sri Lankan players. The incident is of the 43rd over. Virat Kohli was playing on 95 runs. He plays the ball towards square leg. Jeff Vandersay runs to deep square leg and Ashen Bandara runs to deep mid-wicket to stop the ball. The ball was between the two and that is why both the players dived to stop it and collided with each other.
Bandara, who was included in the playing XI for this match, slid with the help of his feet to stop the ball. While Jeffrey was trying to stop him by hand. Meanwhile, Bandara’s knee landed on Vandersay’s stomach. At the same time, Bandara also got injured. Both the players lay across the boundary line. Then the physio came and checked both and the match was stopped for a long time. All the Sri Lankan players had reached to inquire about the condition of their partner. Bandara was in no condition to walk. Because of this, a stretcher had to be brought on the field. He went out lying on it.
