Australia began the two-match Test series against Sri Lanka to victory as the visitors registered a ten-wicket win in the first Test. It took just three days for the Pat Cummins-led side to win the competition and take a 1-0 lead in the series. Nathan Lyon and Travis Head took four wickets each as Sri Lanka were bundled out for 113 in the second innings, setting a target of just five runs for Australia. After this, David Warner hit a four and a six in the very first over for Australia.

No one would have expected Travis Head to take four wickets, but the nature of the surface helped him a lot. Head bowled Jeffrey Vandersay from the gate in the 23rd over of the innings, though no one expected what would happen next.

Head’s sharp off-break got through to Vandersay’s defence. However, the bails deflected to hit Warner on the crotch, posted at leg-slip. He immediately went down in pain. As soon as the video of the incident was uploaded on Twitter, it went viral and fans could not stop laughing.

With this win over Sri Lanka, Australia consolidated their position at the top of the World Test Championship standings.


Sri Lanka has slipped to the sixth position. The second Test between Australia and Sri Lanka starts on July 8.
