In the sixth over of the Bangladesh innings, Liton attempted to play it over covers but could not time the ball properly with enough elevation, as Dasun Shanaka caught it at the edge of the circle. Following the dismissal, Kumara said a couple of words to Liton, as the latter did not take it on a good note.

Liton retaliated by coming at Kumara’s face, while a heated exchange followed. At a point, it seemed like the two were nearly going to exchange physical blows before the Lankan players stepped in and defused the tension. It did look ugly and possibly would draw the match referee’s attention, along with a sanction from the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Mark Nicholas, who was on-air, commentating during the game, said, “Well, well, well – I don’t think I’ve seen that. That’s not a good look for the game of cricket. I’d like to say that it was handbags, but I don’t know that it was. It was quite unpleasant.”

Winning the toss, Lanka has opted to bowl first, as Bangladesh has poted a par total of 171/4 in 20 overs. It could be a stern total to chase down, considering the slow nature of the Sharjah wicket, while the Bangladeshi batters have batted incredibly well so far. However, the pitch does look good for this tie.
