Sri Lanka and Australia are facing each other in the 2nd test match of the series at Galle International stadium. This series is part of the World Test Championship. Australia comfortably won the first test against Sri Lanka by 10 wickets. They would look to win this test and clean sweep the test series in Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka has displayed an amazing fightback in reply to the huge total posted by Australia in the first innings. It was a long tiring day for Australian players in the field. However, David Warner didn’t leave any chance to bring energy in the game. Warner is a very funny character on the field.
During the third day of the test, Angelo Mathews complained of the hindrance in his vision while batting due to movement of Geoff Lemon behind the striker’s back. Warner took the full advantage of the moment and decided to have a banter with the broadcasters.
Warner stood near the stump pic and requested broadcasters to clear the disturbance. Warner was heard saying:” Broadcast, can you tell Geoff Lemon to sit down, in the yellow. Batsman is frustrated, please”. This moment brought smile on face of several cricket fans.
Last evening, @davidwarner31 used our stump microphone to send out a message to @GeoffLemonSport. Not that the message had any impact whatsoever 🙄 #SLvAUS #Galle pic.twitter.com/QUeU9xgktx
