Afghanistan crashed to their first defeat of Asia Cup 2022, losing to Sri Lanka on Saturday by four wickets in the Super Four stage at Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah.

However, things got heated in the 17th over of the chase when Danushka Gunathilaka reverse swept Rashid Khan’s delivery past short third man for a boundary.

The boundary saw the duo get into a heated argument in the middle of the pitch where they exchanged some words, while Bhanuka Rajapaksa had to intervene and separate the pair. However, in the fourth delivery of the over, Rashid got his revenge, sending a shorter delivery, around off, and Gunathilaka could only see it go past him and hit the stumps. Despite his dismissal, his contribution of 33 runs off 20 balls proved to be crucial for the hosts. (D.R.)
