VIDEO: Niroshan Dickwella sledges Jonny Bairstow

Dickwella scored 92

The England cricket team is currently playing the two-match Test series in Sri Lanka. Even though the Sri Lankan team has an advantage of hosting the series, they failed to put the better performance against the visitors.

The Joe Root-led England team won the first Test of the series by seven wickets. In the second Test, the hosts scored 381 in the first innings but got collapsed once again in the second innings as they lost 6 wickets for just 67 runs.

However, during England’s first inning, they lost their openers cheaply when they were just 5. But, the skipper of the England team, Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow rescued the team putting up a big partnership.

While the destructive batsman on strike, the wicket-keeper Niroshan Dickwell took a dig at him. He teased the Englishman batsman for being dropped from the team for the India series but will play IPL only for cash.

A Twitter user said, “Niroshan Dickwella’s sledge totally works against Bairstow. He was saying ‘Why were you dropped from the India tour? You are the best player after the captain in the team. You will play in IPL. Only plays in the cash leagues. In the next over, Embuldeniya gets Bairstow out’.”

In the very next over, Bairstow was gone after producing the edge off Embuldeniya. But, Dickwell could not stop and continued sledging the young England batsman, Daniel Lawrence.
