David Warner is one of the most loved cricketers across the globe. The southpaw is well known for his dance videos with his family that he keeps sharing with his fans on social media. The star batter once again made headlines as he was involved in a funny incident on the field during Day two of the second Test between Australia and Sri Lanka.

During Day two, David Warner requested the broadcasters to ask Geoff Lemon to sit down as the batter was frustrated. While fielding, the opener walked up to the stumps and said “Broadcast, can you tell Geoff Lemon to sit down in the yellow? The batsman is frustrated, please.” The video of the incident went viral in no time and was shared widely.

Lemon also replied to this viral video but a bit later. The Australian author corrected David Warner by telling him the colour of his shirt. “Actually, David, it’s more of a beige and cinnamon,” wrote Lemon on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka batted brilliantly in reply to Australia’s first innings score of 364. The hosts have surpassed Australia’s total and are leading by 67 runs in the first innings. Sri Lanka ended Day 3 on 431/6 after 4 batsmen scored half-centuries and a magnificent unbeaten hundred by Dinesh Chandimal. Captain Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis scored 86 and 85 respectively. Angelo Mathews and Kamindu Mendis scored 52 and 61. The Australian bowlers looked deflated after being on the field for the second consecutive day. Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon and Mitchell Swepson picked up 2 wickets each.

Earlier Australia scored 364 runs in their first innings courtesy of strong performances from centurions, Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith. While Labuschagne scored 104, Smith remained unbeaten on 145. Prabath Jayasuriya was the pick of the bowlers from Sri Lanka as he spun a web around the Australian batsmen and got six wickets to his name. Sri Lanka will be looking to extend their lead over 150 on Day 4 and put the Australian batters under pressure in the third innings.
