Rashid also lost his cool due to this behavior of Gunathilaka, and he was also seen expressing his anger. However, on seeing Rashid’s furious form, Gunathilaka sensed the situation and kept quiet and went back to bat saying sorry. Meanwhile, Rashid was also seen interacting with the umpire in the field.
The Afghan star spinner also settled the account by bowling Gunathilaka on the fourth ball of his over. In fact, Gunathilka once again tried to play a sweep shot against Rashid, but this time Rashid was alert. He cleverly bowled the batsman by throwing a length ball. In this match, Gunathilaka managed to score 33 runs. On the other hand, Rashid got a success.
