Angelo Mathews went into the cricketing history for all the wrong reasons. The former Sri Lankan skipper became the first batter to be dismissed as Timed Out. This incident has already caused a lot of controversies and debates in the cricketing world. Kane Williamson got into the act by trolling Angelo Mathews during the game on Thursday in Bengaluru. 

New Zealand beat Sri Lanka by five wickets to become the favourites to seal the semi-final spot. The match on Thursday saw the Kiwis overhaul the Sri Lankan score of 171 inside the 25th over.

The massive win for New Zealand means that Pakistan is in a position where they cannot come back from if Pakistan beats England by over 275 or inside 16 balls they will make it to the semi-finals of the ODI World Cup 2023.

Kane Williamson and Angelo Mathews share a laugh over banter 

Former Sri Lankan skipper Angelo Mathews came out to bat at the fall of Charith Asalanka. As the 36-year-old was making his way to the wicket Kane Williamson could be seen having some fun with the Lankan batter. The topic of conversation was obviously about the helmet strap which has become a huge topic of contention.

Angelo Mathews could score only 16 from 27 balls with 2 fours to his name. Mitchell Santner got the wicket of the 36-year-old caught in the slips by Daryl Mitchell. Earlier Sri Lanka was struggling at 32/3 when Tim Southee and Trent Boult rocked the top order.

Kusal Perera came out all guns blazing as he scored 51 runs from 28 balls with 8 fours and 2 sixes. just when the Lankan opener was looking dangerous he miscued a hit to be caught by Mitchell Santner off Lockie Ferguson.

Sri Lankan spinner Maheesh Theekshana braved the Kiwi bowlers to score 38 not out from 81 balls. Kiwis bowled out Sri Lanka for just 171 on yet another disappointing day with the bat for the Lankan side.

Devon Conway, Rachin Ravindra, and Daryl Mitchell took over the run-scoring as they went after the Sri Lankan bowling attack. The winning hit came when Glenn Phillips hit Dilshan Madushanka for a six to seal the deal to win the game by 5 wickets with 160 balls left.
