In a shocking turn of events during the 38th match of the 2023 World Cup between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, cricket fans witnessed a never-before-seen incident that sent shockwaves through the cricketing world. Angelo Mathews, a seasoned player, found himself at the center of an unprecedented decision by the umpires. Mathews was bizarrely given “time out” as he was about to face a delivery, resulting in Sri Lanka losing their fifth wicket.
This incident started when Sadira Samarawickrama was out on the second ball of the 25th over. After this, Shakib Al Hasan, who was bowling, appealed for time out against the batsman Angelo Mathews who came on the field. Actually, Mathews had initially brought the wrong helmet, after which he asked to change the helmet. Shakib appealed on this. Field umpire Marais Erasmus repeatedly asked Shakib on this, are you really appealing? Bangladesh captain said, yes we are appealing. After this, Erasmus gave out to Mathews.
