Dhananjaya De Silva Bizarre Hit-Wicket Dismissal Against West Indies: Watch

Dhananjaya De Silva, After a 61-run inning, all-rounder Dhananjaya de Silva lost his wicket in the oddest way possible, smashing his own stumps while attempting to save himself.


During Sri Lanka’s ongoing first Test match against the West Indies at the Galle International Stadium, Dhananjaya de Silva put forth a strong batting performance. Despite a second-day score of 61 from 95 balls, the all-rounder was removed in an unusual manner. He ended up hitting the balls off the stumps while attempting to avoid being bowled out.

Shannon Gabriel ended the 30-year-time old’s in the crease in the first few minutes of Day 2 on Monday. The bowler bowled a length ball outside off in the 95th over of the innings, which De Silva tried to defend on the back foot.

However, he was caught off guard by the delivery’s quick bounce, and in an attempt to reverse the ball’s path in a panic, he ended up striking it on the leg-stump.
