A picture of Sri Lankan coach Chris Silverwood addressing his team in code before a match against Bangladesh has come to light.

Chris Silverwood, the Sri Lankan coach, was observed unusually speaking with his players during Bangladesh’s batting. Chris used the same methods he used when coaching England to display codes on the boards. This, according to commentators, represented actual game strategy for bowling and fielding.

The Sri Lankan team’s strategy didn’t appear to be successful, either, as their bowlers let up a lot of runs. Asitha Fernando, a bowler for Sri Lanka, was the most expensive since he let up 51 runs in four overs. Before Mosaddek Hossain’s 9-ball-24-run finish, Bangladesh’s Afif Hossain and opener Mehidy Hasan both made 39 off 22 and 38 off 26 runs, respectively.

Most of the fans criticized the incident. Fans questioned the function of a captain on the field if signals are relayed from the locker room as Football is not cricket. However, this is not for the first time we are witnessing incidents like this.

By two wickets, SL triumphs in Dubai’s thrilling last over.

Sri Lanka advanced to the Super Fours of the Asia Cup by defeating Bangladesh by two wickets in their final group league match. When Bangladesh was put in to bat, they reached a score of 183 for 7, but Sri Lanka overcame the mark with four balls to spare, reaching 184 for eight. Kusal Mendis made 60 for Sri Lanka, and captain Dasun Shanaka scored 45. With stats of 3/51, Ebadat Hossain was Bangladesh’s preferred bowler.
