The World No 1 Test team has been continuing its winning streak in the longer format of the game. As we all know that ‘Cricket’ is not just a game in India, it is a religion. Despite their age, people love the game in India.
A very touching moment happened during the third Test match between India and Sri Lanka at Pallekele. On the second day of 3rd Test, the world saw a hell lot of cricketing action. It was a day marked by absolute Indian dominance which saw Hardik Pandya slamming Sri Lankan bowlers.
Later, Indian speedster Mohammed Shami was right on the money with his 140 plus deliveries as he removed both the Sri Lankan openers in their first inning. It is not only great performance of Shami that we saw, but he also gave us a moment to remember on the field.
During the Lions’ batting, Shami was guarding the ropes and was in desperate need of some fluid to deal with the scorching heat. Ishant Sharma was seen carrying out duties of a 12th-man on India’s tour of Sri Lanka. Ishant Sharma at that time instructed a young ball boy to carry a bottle of fluid to Shami.
Shami was kind enough to hug the ball boy after he delivered him his drinks. Shami gave us a ‘spirit of the sport’ moment on the field and it deserves a lot of praise. Gestures like these from cricketers completely define the term ‘gentleman’s game’ which is used to refer to the beautiful game.

However, the Indians finished the day on a high note with Sri Lanka following on. Later on Day 3, team India continued its dominance on the hosts and created history by winning the Test series 3-0. This is the first time team India whitewashing the opposite team away home.
