Venkatash Iyer, who was fielding during the third T20 match played between India and Sri Lanka in Dharamsala, was hit on the private part of the ball. Even in pain, Iyer took the catch of Sri Lankan wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Chandimal. After this he rolled twice and sat on the ground. All this was caught on camera, which is now going viral on social media.
Harshal Patel was bowling in the 13th over of the Sri Lankan innings. Chandimal played a hard shot and the ball went straight to Venkatesh standing on point and hit the ball directly on his private part. After that he started moaning in pain. After a short break, he agreed to play again. When Iyer took the catch, the reaction of bowler Harshal Patel was very amazing. It seemed that he could feel Iyer’s pain.
Venkatesh could not do wonders with the bat
