All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Shami were caught in a hilarious mix-up during day 2 of the 1st Test between India and Sri Lanka in Mohali. However, it didn’t result in any casualty.

The incident took place in the 125th over the match when Jadeja tucked one on the leg-side. He immediately called for two and Shami charged in for the second run. However, Ravindra Jadeja turned down after taking a few steps.

However, by the time Jadeja turned down the single, Shami had already reached the crease at the other end. But Biswa Fernando hasn’t seen any of this. He collected the throw and hits the stumps at his own end. This gave Mohammed Shami to return and make it to the other end.
