After Mathews timed out, Sri Lanka refused to shake hands with Bangladeshi players, fighting controversy with controversy

After Mathews timed out, Sri Lanka refused to shake hands with Bangladeshi players, fighting controversy with controversy. The Sri Lankan players shook hands with the umpires and left as soon as Bangladesh scored the winning runs. They declined to give Bangladesh a handshake.

Not only would the World Cup 2023 match between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka take place in the Arun Jaitely Stadium in Delhi, but it would also go down in history as one of the most contentious matches ever. There were tense moments in the match from the start, whether it was a verbal sparring match between Bangladeshi pacer Tanzim Hasan Sakib and Sri Lankan captain Kusal Mendis or stare games between Charith Asalanka and the Bangladesh bowlers.

Mathews was given the timed out on shakib’s appeal

Was the umpiring accurate? What what is the timed out rule? Had Shakib backed down from the appeal? There were many questions, and the discussion went on forever. It was only natural that the Sri Lankan side was very angry. As coach Chris Silverwood and captain Kusal Mendis watched in shock, Mathews was spotted tossing his gloves and helmet in disdain as he entered the dugout.

Although the umpires clarified the rule, Mathews disagreed. He said that after reaching the crease in the allotted two minutes, his helmet’s strap broke, which is a malfunctioning piece of safety equipment.

When it was Sri Lanka’s turn to pitch, Shakib was met with a fierce welcome as he went out to bat. When Shakib was ejected, Mathews also waved him off by pointing to his wrist and indicating time out. Long after Bangladesh won the ballgame, there was still anxiety.

“To gain respect from others, treat the game with dignity” Mathews, Yes, you should show respect to those who show us respect. They still need to respect the game itself, though. We are all representatives of this magnificent game, including the umpires, after all. What more could you possibly want, he asked, if you don’t show respect and apply common sense?
