Imam-ul-Haq Being Removed From Galle

Imam-ul-Haq Being Removed From Galle by MS Dhoni-Esque Stumping by Niroshan Dickwella

Imam-ul-Haq was struck with an off-spin delivery that Ramesh Mendis bowled at a decent length. While the left-handed hitter entirely missed the ball, Sri Lanka was able to secure a wicket because of Niroshan Dickwella’s fast thinking behind the stumps.

In Sri Lanka’s first Test match against Pakistan at the Galle International Stadium, Niroshan Dickwella’s shrewd wicketkeeping abilities brought to mind the late India captain MS Dhoni for cricket fans. In the fourth innings of the game on Tuesday, Dickwella displayed outstanding game awareness to assist his team in getting rid of Imam-ul-Haq. Prior to Dickwella’s brilliant work behind the stumps giving his team the first breakthrough in the innings, Pakistan, who were chasing a goal of 342 runs, got off to a strong start with an 87-run partnership between Imam and Abdullah Shafique.

Ramesh Mendis bowled a decent length off-spin delivery to left-handed hitter Imam on the fourth day of the game. The hitter missed the ball as it swung away from him. Dickwella picked up the ball behind the stumps, waited for Imam to elevate his rear foot, and then swiftly clipped the bails to complete the stumping.

See how Niroshan Dickwella cleverly misled Imam-ul-Haq here:


The stumping brought back memories for the crowd of Dhoni’s similar stumping of Sabbir Rahman in India’s T20 World Cup match against Bangladesh in 2016.

When the umpires called for stumps on Day 4 of the Sri Lanka vs. Pakistan Test match at Galle, the visitors were 222 for 3. Babar Azam’s individual score of 55 cost him his wicket, while Abdullah Shafique’s undefeated century helped Pakistan maintain the lead throughout the game. At the conclusion of Tuesday’s play, the team still needed 120 runs to win the match.
