A three-match ODI series between Sri Lanka and India is underway. The second match of the series was played at R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, where Team India won by three wickets. Sri Lanka’s win in this match seemed once in a while, but Deepak Chahar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were unbeaten on 84 for the eighth wicket to give Team India a win. Sri Lankan coach Mickey Arthur became very angry after the defeat. Anger was clearly visible on Mika Arthur’s face in the last over. He reached the field after the match and it seems there was some argument between him and captain Dasun Shanaka. The video became quite viral on social media, then tweeted by former Sri Lankan cricketer Russell Arnold.
That conversation between the coach and the captain should not be on the field but in the dressing room

‘That conversation between the coach and the captain shouldn’t be on the field, but in the dressing room,’ Russell Arnold wrote on Twitter. Mickey Arthur also answered him. He wrote, ‘Russell we win together, we lose together, but we are always learning. Dasun and I are moving forward as a team and we are both very disappointed by the loss of not being able to win. It was actually a very good discussion, no need to look for anything else. ‘
Russ we win together and lose together but we learn all the time! Dasun and I were raising a team and we were both very disappointed, we didn’t cross the line! This is indeed a good discussion, there is no need to put out mischief!
