In a recent Lanka Premier League (LPL) encounter, cricketer Kusal Mendis displayed an exceptional runout similar to MS Dhoni. Mendis’s quick thinking and precise execution resulted in Lahiru Samarakoon being run out during the match between Dambulla Aura and Galle Titans.
The incident occurred in the final over of the Galle innings. Samarakoon attempted to grab an extra run by flicking a low fulltoss towards square leg. However, Mendis’s lightning reflexes came into play as he collected a wayward throw on the bounce and accurately hit the stumps with an underarm throw, even though he was facing sideways.
Dambulla later comfortably chased down the target in just 17.4 overs, securing a convincing seven-wicket victory.
