Sri Lanka vs India 2017, 3rd ODI: Watch – Jasprit Bumrah Gives India Flying Start by Dismissing Niroshan Dickwella Cheaply
Sri Lanka seems to have learnt a little from their mistakes in the last few matches, as their openers failed to provide the team with a good start in the ongoing do-or-die third One-Day International against India at Pallekele.
After losing the first two games of the five-match series, the hosts need to win the match at any cost to keep the series alive, but the early signs have not gone their way, as their in-form opener, Niroshan Dickwell was dismissed for just 13 by Jasprit Bumrah in the fourth over.
The over from the Indian pacer was full of drama, as on the very first delivery umpire Joel Wilson had raised his finger after Dickwella was trapped in front.
However, the wicketkeeper-batsman wasted no time in reviewing the decision, and it turned out to be a correct review. The next two balls were defended before another ball hit the Sri Lanka opener on his pads. It was looking close and as expected Indian fielders went up in unison only to see the umpire giving his decision in the batsman’s favour.
However, Bumrah was convinced and urged skipper Virat Kohli to go for the review and just like the umpteen number of time in the past, the India captain once again approached his predecessor MS Dhoni to seek inputs. Kohli then went on to review the decision after getting Dhoni’s nod, and the decision was overturned, giving India its first breakthrough.
Here is a clip of that dismissal:
