SL vs ENG: Giant Lizard enters cricket field in Galle Test

By Balaji

Sri Lanka and England are playing out the last test of the two match test series here in Galle. Although very few spectators have been permitted inside the stadium on Day 3 of the test match, there was a special uninvited guest not in the stands but in the field of play.

Giant Lizard spotted at the ground

On Day 3 of the second test match, a giant lizard had entered the field of play near the boundary lines. Joe Root who is just in an amazing batting form wasn’t distracted by the lizard at all and continued on his merry way to make a magnificent 186 at the end of the day’s play.

The lizard which was on the field of play, was expertly caught on camera by the camera person in the ground and Sky Sports official Twitter account had posted a slow motion video of the same. There were some hilarious replies below the tweet as well. One of the hilarious tweet that caught everyone’s eyes was that from a user named Chris Murphy. He said –“ Not sure who has the longer tail, this lizard or the england line up…”.

Match evenly poised

Sri Lanka posted a good first innings score of 381 on board after magnificent century by Angelo Mathews along with useful contributions from Niroshan Dickwella and Dinesh Chandimal. The legend James Anderson claimed a six wicket haul and proved he’s a master of all conditions. England in their reply have posted 339 runs for the loss of 9 wickets at the end of the Day 3. Joe Root was dismissed by a sharp piece of fielding in the last over of the day by Oshada Fernando.

So at the end of the Day 3 the match is evenly poised and both the sides will look to force a result in the next 2 days which should make interesting viewing for the fans.
