ICC World Cup 2019 – Twitter Reactions: Nuwan Pradeep, Lasith Malinga shine in Sri Lanka’s scrappy win over Afghanistan

Posted On

Nuwan Pradeep and Lasith Malinga, on Tuesday, starred with the ball as Sri Lanka fought back to crush Afghanistan’s hopes of a memorable victory in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

Afghanistan, bidding for just their second win in a World Cup match and their first over a Test nation were in command halfway through a gloomy day in Cardiff after dismissing Sri Lanka for 201.

They then got with a rain-revised target of 187 in 41 overs but their batting let them down again as the Afghans were bowled out for paltry 152 in 32.4 overs.

Pradeep took a career-best 4 for 31, while Malinga (3 for 39) struck at both ends of the innings, finishing the match with a toe-crushing yorker that cleaned up Hamid Hassan.

Here’s how Twitter reacted:
