In the 41st clash of the ICC World Cup 2023, New Zealand locked horns with Sri Lanka at the iconic M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. Despite the passage of days since the infamous Angelo Mathews time-out dismissal incident, the memory lingers on the cricketing field.
Today, as Mathews stepped up to the crease against the Kiwis, the New Zealand skipper dashed towards him with a cheeky inquiry. “Got yourself a sturdy lid, mate? Strap intact?” he quipped, setting off a chorus of laughter from both the commentators and the spirited fans. The light-hearted exchange swiftly became the talk of social media, showcasing the camaraderie and banter.
