One Ball, Three Drops: Bangladeshi fielders make mockery of a straightforward chance vs Sri lanka

In the first Test, Sri Lanka secured a significant victory over Bangladesh by 328 runs.

Another day and another funny outing. The ongoing two-game Test series between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka is in full swing, with the visitors continuing their dominant performance after securing victory in the first Test. The BAN vs SL Test is being played at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.

On the second day of the second Test, a hilarious moment occurred during the 121st over of the first innings. As Khaled Ahmed delivered to Prabath Jayasuriya, the batter attempted a drive but only managed to edge the ball.

The ball travelled towards the first slip where Najmul Hossain Shanto attempted a catch but failed to grasp it firmly, juggling it towards the second slip. However, the second slip also failed to secure the catch, resulting in a fumble. Finally, the ball reached the third slip, where Mahmudul Hasan Joy missed the chance as well, leading to a comical sequence of events. This incident quickly gained traction on social media platforms.

Despite Bangladesh picking up two more wickets in the afternoon session of day two, Sri Lanka approached the 500-run mark. De Silva’s positive innings of 70, which included six fours and two sixes, concluded abruptly after lunch as Khaled Ahmed claimed his first wicket of the match. Despite the frustrations caused by the partnership between Kamindu Mendis and Jayasuriya, Shakib Al Hasan managed to break it, providing some relief for the home side.
