A hilarious moment on Monday arrived when England took on Sri Lanka in the second Test of the two-match series. England skipper Joe Root sledged Dinesh Chandimal, the Sri Lankan veteran, and the latter just threw away his wicket on the very next ball and now the video is causing hysteria on social media.
England and Sri Lanka have locked horns in the second Test of the two-match series at Galle. Batting first, Sri Lanka had posted a total of 381 runs. In response, English skipper Joe Root was once again up to the task as he led the English innings and smashed his second consecutive century on Sunday.
Watch: Joe Root Sledges Dinesh Chandimal And The Latter Throws Away His Wicket On The Very Next Ball
A hilarious moment appeared online when a video went viral of Joe Root sledging Sri Lankan batsman, Dinesh Chandimal. In the video, Root can be seen saying, “Come on Chandi! Throw your wicket away!!” However, what happened next made a lot of laughter as Chandimal played a poor shot and got dismissed on the very next ball.
The Sri Lankan cricket team is once again in a lot of trouble after the English spinner, Dom Bess and Jack Leach have spun a web around the Lankan batting in the second innings. Sri Lanka has managed to score just 120 runs in the second innings and they have lost their 8 batsmen until reaching the total.

England On The Brink Of Whitewashing Sri Lanka
The English Cricket Team is now on the brink of winning the second Test match and completing a clean sweep in the nation. They had won the first Test of the series too, thanks to a double ton from Joe Root, the English skipper. Now, if England manage to restrict the Lankan lead under 200 runs, they have a great chance of winning the Test and sealing the series.
England will then arrive in India for a two-month long tour, that will commence with the four-match Test series at Chennai from February 5, followed by the five-match T20I series, and a three-match ODI series.
