A fierce fight broke out between two fielders of the Sri Lankan team when they were blocking the ball at the boundary line. He was taken out of the ground on a stretcher. At the same time, Virat Kohli came to know about him from the captain of the team.
An unfortunate incident happened during the third and final match of the ODI series between India and Sri Lanka, when two Sri Lankan players clashed while fielding. These players were Jeffrey Vandersay and Ashen Bandara, who clashed while trying to block a boundary during the 43rd over of the Indian innings and were badly injured. He was taken out on a stretcher. Meanwhile, the reaction of Virat Kohli was different. He was batting at that time.
Team India batsman Virat Kohli had hit the ball towards the fine leg boundary, where Vandersay and Bandara were running towards the ball from opposite directions and they clashed badly, resulting in injuries to both. Play was stopped for several minutes as both received treatment for their injuries, but eventually had to be carried off the field. Sri Lankan cricketers were looking tense at this time, so Virat Kohli asked Sri Lankan captain Dasun Shanaka about his condition.
Talking about this match, India won it by a huge margin of 317 runs. For the first time in One Day International cricket, a team has won a match by a margin of 300 or more runs. This became possible because Virat Kohli scored his 46th ODI century. He returned unbeaten after scoring 166 runs, while Shubman Gill scored his second career century. In India’s bowling, Mohammad Siraj took 4 wickets, while Mohammad Shami and Kuldeep Yadav got 2-2 wickets.
