Watch: Ex-Sri Lanka Cricketer Chamara Silva Plays The Most Bizarre Shot

At a time when scoring runs at a fast pace has become the need of the hour, the players have come up with some outrageous shots like the ramp shot, switch hit, Dilscoop. However, as far as innovative shots are concerned, one can say that nothing can beat the shot that former Sri Lanka cricketer Chamara Silva attempted during a recent domestic game.

The bizarre incident took place during the match between MAS Unichela and Teejay Lanka at P Sara Oval in Colombo. As the bowler was running in towards the pitch to deliver the ball, Silva started walking back, and in doing so, he went behind the stumps. Surprisingly, he even swung his bat wildly without realising that the bowler had an easy task of just aiming at the stumps which he did without any mistake.

Here is a clip of that bizarre shot:

Not surprisingly, the 37-year old has become a laughing stock across the social media.

Meanwhile, the right-handed batsman was handed a two-year ban by Sri Lanka Cricket earlier this year over wrongdoings during a Tier B match. SLC said the match between Panadura Cricket Club and Kalutara Physical Culture Club in January this year was not played in the right spirits and punished the players as well as the clubs.

Silva has later filed an appeal and was allowed to play domestic cricket pending the outcome of the ongoing investigation.
