Twitter goes berserk as Rahul Dravid rushes from dressing room to pass Deepak Chahar a message

India’s Deepak Chahar was an unexpected hero with the bat in the second ODI against Sri Lanka on Tuesday. Chahar was sent to bat ahead of the more accomplished Bhuvneshwar Kumar after India lost their top six wickets for just 160 runs while chasing 276. In the end, both Chahar and Bhuvi added an unbeaten 84-run partnership for the eight-wicket to script a famous win for the Men in Blue.

During the match, there were quite a few tense moments, and one of them also saw India head coach Rahul Dravid notice something that he couldn’t resist keeping to himself. Dravid rushed from the dressing room and went straight to Rahul Chahar sitting in the dugout. The 48-year-old gave the spinner a message to pass on to Deepak, who was batting brilliantly in the middle with Bhuvneshwar.

Rahul finally got time to enter the field when Deepak suffered cramps in the 47th over. Deepak’s injury wasn’t serious, but it at least gave the substitutes enough time to pass on Dravid’s message.

Fans soon got to see Deepak playing four consecutive dot balls in the next over bowled by Wanindu Hasaranga – Sri Lanka’s leading wicket taker in the match.

Chahar and Bhuvneshwar then hit three fours in the next seven balls to take India over the finish line with three wickets in hand.

Mickey Arthur responds to Russel Arnold’s comments on his heated conversation with Dasun Shanaka

Micky Arthurs animated reaction following Sri Lanka’s defeat against India in the second One-Day International (ODI) has become one of the major talking points of the match. Arthur was spotted in different moods when Team India changed the momentum of the game and snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.

Deepak Chahar played an unbeaten knock of 69 runs to guide India to a memorable victory. Arthur looked extremely disappointed as the hosts lost the game after being in a winning position. He was also seen having a heated conversation with Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka. A video of that incident went viral on social media where the two could be seen arguing, possibly over the outcome of the match.

The thing which surprised many was the whole interaction between Arthur and Shanaka took place on the ground and not inside the change room. Former Sri Lanka all-rounder Russel Arnold, who is part of the commentary panel, was also shocked to see the visuals and expressed his thoughts on social media.

Arnold took to Twitter and mentioned that the conversation between the coach and the captain should have happened in the dressing room.

“That conversation between Coach and captain should not have happened on the field but in the dressing room,” Arnold wrote on Twitter.

However, Arthur was quick to respond to the cricketer-turned-commentator, suggesting that he should not make the mountain out of the molehill.

“Russ, we win together and lose together, but we learn all the time! Dasun and myself are growing a team, and we both were very frustrated we did not get over the line! It was actually a very good debate; no need to make mischief out of it!,” tweeted Arthur.
