Sri Lanka vs Pakistan 2nd Test starts today at Galle International Stadium. Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat. Another special thing about this Test match is that today Angelo Mathews is played his 100th Test match for Sri Lanka. Meanwhile, Pakistan captain Babar Azam dropped Angelo Mathews’s simple catch.
This error occurred from the hand of Babar Azam in the 52nd over of the match. Mathews, who started playing his 100th Test for Sri Lanka, was given a big opportunity. Nauman Ali, who came in as the second spin bowler for Pakistan, bowled the ball on the offside and Mathews could not judge correctly. The ball hits Mathews with the bat and the ball goes into Babar’s hands.
Then funny things happened on the ground; Babar dropped an easy catch. The ball hit the fingers and Mathews got a new life. But Mathews could not take full advantage of this opportunity, and Mathews was on 42 runs and was caught by the wicketkeeper on the ball thrown by Ali.
