In return, England was dismissed at a score of 344 runs and Joe Root scored a brilliantly knitted ton against the hosts in the first innings. During Sri Lanka’s 2nd innings, a hilarious instance happened on the field that got viral on social media. The English skipper Joe Root tried sledging Dinesh Chandimal. He was recorded saying, “Come on Chandi! Throw your wicket away!!.” Soon after this, something happened on the field and left cricket fans laughing.

Dinesh Chandimal lost his calm and threw his wicket away on the very next ball. Coming onto the game, Sri Lankan batsmen were once again stuck in the web spun by English spinner Dom Bess and Jack Leech. The spinning duo grabbed 8 wickets in the 2nd innings.

Now, England is in a prime position to win the match and need only 123 runs in order to register their 7th consecutive victory over Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka in the longer format.
