Liton Das, Lahiru Kumara fight in Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh: Sri Lanka is currently facing Bangladesh in the ongoing 15th match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021.

Watch: Liton Das, Lahiru Kumara FIGHT after the wicket
The ongoing SL vs BAN encounter saw a massive drama on the field after the dismissal of Bangladesh opener Liton Das. Sri Lanka’s experienced pacer Lahiru Kumara got the wicket of Liton during the 8th over of the match. However, just after the dismissal, Kumara, Liton and Mohammad Naim were engaged in an angry tussle as the players from both the teams got involved in the heated face-off. Eventually, the on-field umpires had to separate the players and clear the situation. Incidentally, Kumara also came up with an unnecessary wild throw at Naim during his previous over in the same match and this might have been the starting point of the fight.
This should have not happened.

Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh Live
After losing the toss and being asked to bat first on a tricky Sharjah wicket, Bangladesh got off to a fine start having scored 41 runs in the first six overs of the powerplay. Naim is still looking in an amazing touch while Liton Das got out after scoring 16 runs. However, Bangladesh will be disappointed to lose the key wicket of Shakib Al Hasan quite early.
Both these sides are coming into this Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup after performing really well in the last few outings. Sri Lanka were by far the best team in the Group A of the Qualifiers as they registered three comprehensive wins against Ireland, Netherlands and Namibia. On the other hand, Bangladesh started off their T20 World Cup campaign with a disappointing loss against Scotland, however, they came back strongly with victories against Oman and Papua New Guinea. In the 11 T20I matches played between these two teams, Sri Lanka have dominated the proceedings with as many as 7 wins while Bangladesh have emerged victorious on 4 occasions.
