A three-match T20 international series between India and Sri Lanka is underway.

Coach Rahul Dravid’s disappointment became apparent soon after Suriyakumar handed the catch to substitute fielder Ramesh Mendis in the bowling delivery. Hasranga came in to bowl the 16th over of India’s innings and was greeted with a six by Suryakumar Yadav.
In the first delivery, Wahidu caught Suryakumar in his spin and hit a long shot, Suryakumar Yadav caught the catch and returned to the pavilion. Coach Dravid was sitting on the dugout at the time and wasn’t particularly happy to see such unwanted shots. The disappointment was evident in the face of Rahul Dravid, whose video is now widely shared on social media.
