Couldn’t believe it on multiple levels. First and foremost that is quite the swelling and quite the injury. Wow. I have seen quite bit of sports injuries, having played a ton of sports in my prior life, but nothing like that.
The other thing I could not fathom was that it was not thrown at him. More of a gentle lob. Must have just hit him awkwardly.
Also not sure why wicketkeeper Niroshan Dickwella lobbed the ball at him. He is not the captain and he wasn’t due to be bowling. Very strange.
But, that swelling. That is something else.
