Profligacy at Premadasa Stadium: Wides ….. and More Wides

Bangladesh are recorded to have sent down 16 WIDES

18 (lb 1, nb 1, w 16)
314/8 (50 Overs, RR: 6.28)

…. Sri Lanka  to have served up 24 Wides

28 (lb 4, w 24)

This may be a shortfall … I witnessed Lahiru Kumara  send down two over the head BOUNCERS in one over which sailed over keeper Mendis’s head ad nd went for for runs …and it seems that at least one of these was not counted because  Kumara  is ‘credited’ with 04 wides only.

On this showing Lahiru Kumara  is a liability ..what a pea brain! When one sort bouncer sails over the keeper fro four runs, why repeat the dose?
