Cricket the game of uncertainities! India beat Sri Lanka consecutively in the 4th ODI yesterday. Virat Kohli played so well and made 131 runs. It was his 29th century. He got out at 131 by Lasith Malinga who is also the captain of Sri Lankan team. Shockingly, everyone pop their eyes out when Rohit Sharma went to Lasith Malinga and hugs him after he made Virat Kohli out!
People are wondering why? Let us tell you before you make any point, actually, Virat’s wicket was Malinga’s career’s 300th wicket. Therefore, Rohit went to him and congratulated him for making a mark in his awesome bowling spell. In his career of 203 ODIs, Malinga fulfilled this achievement. He is the 13th bowler in the world who achieved 300 wickets till now.
Also, Rohit and Malinga play for the same team, Mumbai Indians, in IPL matches. Therefore, they two share a good bond of friendship too. Hardik Pandya who came after Virat Kohli got out also congratulated Lasith Malinga. Now, this is what we call the game spirit.
We congratulate Malinga for his achievement!!
