Ind vs SL 2nd T20I: Rahul Tripathi falls down after taking Pathum Nissanka’s catch© Twitter
Rahul Tripathi was handed his debut India cap by batting coach Vikram Rathour ahead of the second T20I against Sri Lanka. The batter was drafted into the playing XI after Sanju Samson was ruled out of the series due to an injury sustained in the first match.
Tripathi made his presence felt on the field after Pandya decided to field on winning the toss.
He took a great running catch close to the boundary to dismiss Pathum Nissanka off the bowling of Axar Patel in the 12th over of the Sri Lankan innings.
Tripathi fell down after taking the catch, landing very close to the boundary rope. He raised both his hands in joy when he realised he was still inside the boundary.
Fans on Twitter celebrated the debutant’s effort with several posts. Here are some of them.
