As soon as Sri Lanka’s all-rounder Chamika Karunaratne made the run that proved to be the game-winning one, the entire Sri Lankan camp went into an exuberant frenzy and began performing the “Naagin Dance.”
At the Dubai International Stadium, in the Group B matchup of the Asia Cup, Sri Lanka’s team, captained by Dasun Shanaka, emerged victorious over Bangladesh in a high-scoring contest that was a part of the competition. As Bangladesh was trying to reach 184 runs, Sri Lanka won the match in the final over by two wickets, and as a direct result, Bangladesh was eliminated from the competition.
Shakib-Al-Hasan and his teammates were up for the duration of the match, but in the closing overs, Ebadot Hossain and Mahedi Hasan bowled no-balls, which allowed Sri Lanka to collect free-hit after free-hit. As a result, Shakib-Al-Hasan and his teammates lost the match. As soon as Sri Lanka’s all-rounder Chamika Karunaratne made the run that proved to be the game-winning one, the entire Sri Lankan camp went into an exuberant frenzy and began performing the “Naagin Dance.”
Even Sri Lankan supporters in the stands participated in the ribbing of Bangladesh by performing the Naagin Dance. It is essential to recall that Bangladesh won the Nidahas Trophy in 2018, and that after their victory over Sri Lanka, Mushfiqur Rahim performed the Naagin Dance to celebrate their victory over the Islanders.
Later on, in the same competition, during a knock-out match between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, Bangladesh emerged victorious, and in the midst of a contentious match, they performed the Naagin Dance once again.
In terms of the game itself, Bangladesh batted first and managed to score 183 sevens in their allotted 20 overs. Mehidy Hasan Miraz was the player with the highest score, knocking 38 out of 26 balls. For Sri Lanka, Chamika Karunaratne and Wanindu Hasaranga scalped two wickets each.
Kusal Mendis made the most of the several life he was given while chasing 184, and in the end, he played a knock of 60 runs for the team. Maheesh Theekshana and Asitha Fernando were the ones that ultimately carried Sri Lanka across the finish line.
This means that Sri Lanka’s opening match of the Super 4s will be on Saturday at Sharjah, and it will be against Afghanistan.
