Sri Lanka batsman Chamara Silva became a laughing stock on internet after his failed attempt to play a bizarre shot in a match between MAS and Teejay Lanka.
Sri Lanka batsman Chamara Silva’s bizarre attempt to create a new shot!
With cricket’s evolution we have witness a lot of changes. Some changes are revolutions that almost become a trend for the coming generations. We have so many examples. Who can forget Viru’s ‘Upper Cut’ ? For the matter of fact KP’s ‘Switch Hit’ will rule this segment. Even a Sri Lankan cricketer has his name on the premium list. Yes we are talking about Dilshan’s ‘Dil-Scoop’. But it certainly didn’t go well for this fellow Sri-Lankan. Chamara Silva’s dismal attempt will go down as one of the epic fails in cricketing fraternity and will surely echo through the ages.
Sri Lanka batsman Chamara Silva became a laughing stock on social media after his failed attempt to play a bizarre shot in a match between MAS Unichela and Teejay Lanka at P Sara Oval in Colombo. It wasn’t a scoop, nor was he trying to play a reverse sweep to a fast bowler. It was an innovation of a new level altogether . The 37-year-old went behind the stumps and swung the bat to play a pull shot but it seemed he forgot he could get out bowled too.

Chamara was in a ban for two years for misconduct during a domestic first-class match in September. SLC confirms the match between Panadura Cricket Club and Kalutara Physical Culture Club in January this year. The game was against keeping with the spirit of the game and that players and officials on both sides got penalties. The captains of both the teams saw ban for two years from all cricketing activities while the SLC’s conclusion saw the barring other players and managers for one year.
A hefty fine of half a million rupees ($3,300) each for the two clubs was the amount for penalty. The match was void and the points table saw appropriate adjustment.
The two sides scored 587 runs on the final day despite only 180 scored over the first two days. Which in fact, prompting an investigation continuing for seven months.
Later, Chamara was allowed to play domestic cricket by Sri Lankan cricket, according to Indian Express. For Sri Lanka, the right handed batsman has played 11 Tests, 75 ODIs and 16 Twenty20 internationals.
