Sri Lanka had lost their first T20I match of the series with Australia at the Adelaide oval and to win the series they’ve need to win the second T20I match for sure.
After winning the toss and electing to bat first at The Gabba, Brisbane, Sri Lanka has posted a total of 117 on the score board by losing all their wickets.
In the second delivery of 13th over, Australian opener David Warner smashed the ball straight towards the bowler Lakshan Sandakan and at this time non-striker Batsman Steve Smith has crossed half the pitch.
Sandakan has the chance to run out Steve Smith by just getting his hand in contact with ball and letting it hit the wicket but he missed it, although he got another chance to runout Steve Smith has the ball rebounded back to Sandakan after hitting the wickets.
This time all he has to do is uproot the wickets by holding ball in his hands, but Sandakan has hillariously uprooted the stumps by holding ball in another hand.
By this time Steve Smith reached the non-strikers end, thus Sri Lanka missed an Goldem opportunity to run out Steve Smith.
Watch: Lakshan Sandakan misses chance to run out Steve Smith:

However, even if the Sandakan would have utillised this run out chance they would’ve not won the match has Australia ceased the victory in 17 overs itself.
