The Sri Lanka cricket team was trounced by innings and 53 runs in the 2nd Test by Virat Kohli-led India on Sunday. In doing so, the visitors sealed the three-match Test series with a day to spare. After being bowled out for just 183 in the first innings, the Sri Lankan top order put up a spirited display in the second.

Dilmuth Karunaratne and nightwatchman Malinda Pushpakumara came out to bat on Day 4 with the hosts at 209/2. Unfortunately for the home team, Pushpakumara experienced a ‘brain fade’ of sorts as he played an audacious reverse sweep to throw away his wicket early on. With the team fighting hard to save to Test and series, greater application was expected from Pushpakumara.

Not just Sri Lanka fans, but Sunil Gavaskar too criticized Pushpakumara for his choice of shot.
