A cricket match unfolds in Colombo between Sri Lanka and India. This marked the first clash of a two-game Test series. India’s lineup includes prominent names like Mohammad Azharuddin, Sachin Tendulkar, and Anil Kumble.

However, it was Rahul Dravid and Sanath Jayasuriya, two other cricket legends, who took the limelight with one of the most peculiar dismissals ever witnessed in Test cricket.

At a score of 230-2 for India, and with Rahul ‘The Wall’ Dravid at 69 off 197 balls, Dravid opted to cut a delivery from Jayasuriya into the off-side. The shot was struck with full force, hitting Marvan Atapattu stationed at silly point. The ball then deflected back across the wicket, where a diving Jayasuriya managed to secure the catch.

Following this, India concluded their innings with a score of 537-8, only to witness Sri Lanka amass the record-breaking highest total in Test cricket history at 952-6. Jayasuriya was at the forefront, contributing a remarkable 340 runs in addition to his impressive figures of 3-45 in the first innings.
