Sri Lanka’s young batting all-rounder, Shehan Jayasuriya took an unbelievable catch against the West Indies in the second T20I – to dismiss Rovman Powell. Jayasuriya pulled off a blinder on the boundary ropes as he not only took the catch but also saved a certain boundary for his team.
He stunned the spectators with his catch as it was a thing of beauty which he controlled magically with amazing sharp reflexes owing to his sheer concentration.
However, his effort went in vain as Sri Lanka lost the match and the series after having lost the first game of the two-match series as well.
Windies wrapped up the series 2-0 in Sri Lanka against the hosts by winning the second game of the two-match series by seven wickets. Andre Russell was awarded the Man of the Match and Man of the Series for his amazing all-round contribution.
