WATCH: Dinesh Chandimal throws away his wicket after Joe Root sledges him in Galle Test

Joe Root, Dinesh Chandimal

A hilarious moment took place during Sri Lanka vs England second Test at the Galle International Stadium on Monday. England captain Joe Root sledged his counterpart Dinesh Chandimal in the post-lunch session on Day 4 and the latter just threw away his wicket on the very next ball and now the video is going viral on social media.

Chandimal was dismissed after scoring only 9 runs off 6 balls as Sri Lanka suffered an embarrassing collapse in their second innings. Dom Bess and Jack Leach picked up 4 wickets apiece to help England bundle out the hosts for a paltry 126 and set up a comfortable win for the visiting side.

While chasing down the target of 164 in their second essay, England got off to a shaky start losing opener Zak Crawley on 13 before Dominic Sibley (56) and Jonny Bairstow (29) added a 45-run partnership for the second wicket. Wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttle then hit a 48-ball 46 to take England over the finish line, helping his team in registering a dominant 2-0 series win.

England had earlier defeated Sri Lanka by seven wickets in the two-match series-opener which was played at the same venue.

Here’s the video:
