Desperate for a replacement, time slipped away, leaving Mathews stranded. Despite his pleas, Shakib Al Hasan successfully appealed for the rare timed-out decision, marking an unusual chapter in cricket history.
A sudden batting collapse left Sri Lanka reeling at Bangalore
In the ongoing ICC World Cup, the spotlight shifted to a crucial clash between Sri Lanka and New Zealand at Bengaluru's M Chinnaswamy Stadium on November 9. Electing to bowl after winning the toss, captain Kane Williamson set the tone for a gripping battle. The stakes were high as Kiwis aimed for a vital victory in this must-win encounter, keeping cricket enthusiasts on the edge of their seats.
Sri Lanka's innings ignited with a fiery start, courtesy of Kusal Perera's rapid 51 off 28 balls. However, the formidable pace duo of Trent Boult and Tim Southee swiftly dismantled the Sri Lankan top order, leaving them reeling at a precarious 70/5. They were eventually bundled out for a mere 171 runs. Kusal Perera was the leading run scorer and notched up a half-century before getting dismissed by Lockie Ferguson.
