Watch: Bangladesh Players’ Circus Act to Stop Boundary Goes Viral

The ongoing second Test match between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh has turned into a goldmine of comedic moments, with videos from the game going viral across social media platforms. Following a series of comical incidents including a memorable DRS call and a missed catch attempt by three fielders, another video has surfaced, this time showcasing five Bangladesh players chasing after a single ball in a bid to prevent a boundary during the Sylhet Test.

The amusing spectacle has sparked a flurry of reactions online, with some users likening it to a scene straight out of the renowned movie ‘Lagaan’, while others humorously dubbed the players as “clowns”. Asitha Fernando emerged as a standout performer for Sri Lanka, claiming figures of 4-34 as they bowled out Bangladesh for 178, establishing a commanding 353-run lead in the first innings of the second Test in Chittagong.

Despite opting not to enforce a follow-on, Sri Lanka found themselves struggling in their second innings, reaching 102-6 by stumps on the third day, extending their lead to 455 runs. Debutant pacer Hasan Mahmud provided a silver lining for Bangladesh with figures of 4-51, while Khaled Mahmud also posed problems for the Sri Lankan batsmen, capturing 2-29.

However, amidst the laughter and chaos, Angelo Mathews stood firm for Sri Lanka, remaining unbeaten on 39 alongside Prabath Jayasuriya (three not out), as they sought to extend their team’s lead with the support of the tail-enders.

Earlier, Lahiru Kumara, Vishwa Fernando, and Prabath Jayasuriya had made significant contributions, each claiming two wickets as Sri Lanka dismantled the Bangladesh batting line-up, taking nine wickets in just two sessions to leave the hosts reeling.

Zakir Hasan emerged as the top scorer for Bangladesh with a gritty 54, while Mominul Haque offered some resistance with 33. The day began with Bangladesh resuming their innings at 55-1, but their resistance was shattered by Sri Lankan bowlers.

Ultimately, Sri Lanka’s dominance in the match continued their trend from the first Test, where they secured victory by a margin of 328 runs in Sylhet. With the series history in their favor, Sri Lanka looks poised to maintain their unbeaten record against Bangladesh in Test cricket.
