Twitter Reactions: Dilruwan Perera does a ‘brain fade’ which worked in his favour
Dilruwan Perera takes the review

After a magical bowling display by Dinesh Chandimal’s Sri Lanka; the Indian team get restricted to a mere total of 172. The Sri Lankans in reply managed to take the upper hand in the Test match on Day 4. Though the lead is not a healthy one, the visitors have quite comfortably gone past the Indian total which is an advantage.

However, the match was marked by a strange but funny incident post lunch involving batsman Dilruwan Perera and veteran Rangana Herath. On the score of 208/7, Mohammad Shami struck Perera right on the pads as the Indian team went up for an appeal. While the umpire did not hesitate to put his finger up, Perera had a significant amount of doubt in his mind.

The right-hander gave an angry stare to the non-striker Herath as he waited for the senior to go for a review, which was blatantly ignored by Herath. Dilruwan followed it by starting to make his long walk back only to return and ask for a review eventually. The review worked in favour of the batsman as it spotted that the delivery pitched way out of line and forced the umpire to take back his decision.

It is believed that though Herath did not think of taking a review, the green signal came from the Sri Lankan dressing room which prompted Perera to take advantage of the situation. However, Perera did not last long at the crease as he fell victim to Mohammad Shami scoring just five runs facing 34 deliveries. Rangana Herath played the innings of a warrior, and his valiant knock added up 67 runs to the Sri Lankan scoreboard. The Sri Lankans are now in firm control of the game, though the encounter at Kolkata is heading towards a deadlock.
