11/13 Hasaranga knew the mantra to return
Hasaranga knew the mantra to return.
Wanindu Hasaranga is the poster boy of Sri Lankan cricket. This leg spinner has become effective in almost every match. Just as he became the highest wicket taker in the first T20 World Cup in his own game, he also became the highest wicket taker in the Asia Cup. Hasaranga is spreading light with the ball in this year’s World Cup in Australia.
However, in the match against hosts Australia in Perth, Hasaranga had to be criticized due to expensive bowling. The question arises, is this Lankan bowler ineffective against the big team? However, in the next match, this left-armer returned with a sharp response to the criticism. Hasaranga bowled well against New Zealand and Afghanistan. Cricket Scores
Hasaranga bowling the match winning spell against Afghanistan, expressed the comeback mantra. He said, “I was quite scratchy in Perth. That pitch was helpful for batting. But I knew how to come back. I think I did that. I knew how to bowl in the big boundaries of this ground.”
On the other hand, Hasaranga said that it was important for them to play the best cricket in the match against Afghanistan. Because the Lankans have lost the last two matches against Australia and New Zealand. This Lankan cricketer also said that after seeing the bowling of Australian leg-spinner Adam Jumper, he became successful by bowling accordingly.
Hasaranga admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Ranjan Madugalle of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees, so there was no need for a formal hearing.
On-field umpires Nitin Menon and Lyndon Hannibal, third umpire Raveendra Wimalasari and fourth umpire Ruchira Palliyaguruge levelled the charge.
Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points
Najibullah Zadran’s LBW judgement during the game was reversed during Hasaranga’s third over after being initially ruled out by the on-field umpire. The 25-year-old pointed at the massive screen, outraged at the choice.
A formal hearing was not necessary because Hasaranga acknowledged the violation and agreed to the punishment suggested by Ranjan Madugalle of the ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees.
Sri Lanka accomplished a remarkable chase, chasing a target of 314 set by Afghanistan. They levelled the series 1-1 with the victory and climbed one spot to ninth in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League.
