Colombo: The Sri Lankan team is in shock after losing a match against India. Following Sri Lanka’s 275, India was seven out of 192 at one stage. But the alliance between Deepak Chahar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar led India to a stunning victory. The loss came as a huge shock to coach Mickey Arthur, who celebrated from the locker room with every spot India took. Capture of Captain Dasun Shanaka was the reason for the defeat. After the game, the coach publicly argued with the captain in the middle of the field. The video of this has been released. The coach is also seen returning from the field after arguing with the captain. Former player Russell Arnold said such conversations between the coach and the captain should take place in the locker room after the incident became controversial. Arnold also pointed out that such discussions are not correct when there are cameras around. At the same time, Mickey Arthur’s response was that it was only a healthy conversation with the captain and had been misunderstood by others.
Deepak Chahar (69) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (19) led India to victory. The duo put up 84 for the eighth wicket. Chahar, who took two plots, was the man of the match. In the final, Sri Lanka lost the draw and chose the field.
