“It ain’t all about bowling in Asia”, Twitter reacts to the poor performance by Wanindu Hasaranga against Australia in the T20 World Cup

Australia defeated Sri Lanka by seven wickets to win their first game of the tournament. Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga had a forgettable game, as he conceded 53 runs in 3 overs. His spell was the momentum shifter towards Australia. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted to the poor performance by Wanindu Hasaranga against Australia in the T20 World Cup.

The Aussies score a win in the T20 World Cup

Sri Lanka did well, batting first, to score 157 runs. They did not have a quick start but once the players got the hang of the pitch, they actually did pretty well. Even with the ball, the Sri Lankan squad started well. However, once they started to lose momentum, Australia took the game away with them.

The Aussies had a few scares while chasing the score. David Warner and Mitchell Marsh fell early and it seemed that the game would go down to the wire. However, some quickfire contributions by Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis helped Australia win the game. They chased the total in just 16.3 overs and this massive win will help their confidence after they lost their first game to New Zealand. For Sri Lanka, though, some introspection is needed, especially in the spin bowling department.

Twitter reacts to the disastrous show by Wanindu Hasaranga against Australia

The all-rounder bowled three overs in the game. While he gave 15 runs in the first over, he gave away 19 runs in his next two overs. All these three overs came at a time when Sri Lanka was looking to pin down Australia. Considering he is the lead spinner in the squad, it was a disappointing show by the cricketer. Hasaranga has the habit of leaking runs at times and this time around, it proved costly for his team. The player must make amends at the earliest. Here is what Twitter had to say about his performance:
