“Litton MS Das”: Bangladesh Star’s No-Look Run-Out Has Internet In Awe. Watch

Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batter Litton Das inflicted a stunning no-look run-out during the third and final T20I against Sri Lanka in Sylhet on Saturday. The incident happened on the final ball of Sri Lanka’s innings when Dasun Shanaka and Sadeera Samarawickrama tried to steal a couple of runs for the visitors. Shanaka flicked Mustafizur Rahman’s delivery towards mid-on, hoping to steal a couple of runs. While the pair completed the first run successfully, Shanaka scampered his way towards the keeper’s end to complete the second.

Rishad Hossain fired his throw at striker’s end, but his attempt was a bit wayward. Litton, however, stunned everyone as he showed great awareness to collect the ball, before inflicting a no-look run out.

His effort reminded fans of former India captain MS Dhoni, who had a knack off pulling no-look run outs throughout his career.

Nuwan Thushara grabbed a maiden over hat-trick and finished 5-20 while Kusal Mendis hit a career-best 86 to help Sri Lanka pummel Bangladesh in the series decider.

Bangladesh were bowled out for 146 in the final over in Sylhet despite late efforts by Rishad Hossain and Taskin Ahmed, who top-scored with 53 and 31 respectively.

Mendis set up the win for Sri Lanka with his 55-ball knock of six fours and as many sixes, guiding the visitors to 174-7 after they were put in to bat by the tourists for the third and final match.

Thushara, bowled skipper Najmul Hossain (one) and Towhid Hridoy (nought) off the second and third delivery of his first over in the series, finishing the hat-trick by trapping Mahmudullah Riyad lbw.

“I’m really happy, it was the first hat-trick in my life,” he said afterwards. “In a match like this, I’m just pleased to be able to help the team.”

“Credit goes to Nuwan Thushara the way he bowled, I think he bowled brilliantly,” said Bangladesh captain Najmul.

Sri Lanka won the first match by three runs and Bangladesh triumphed by eight wickets two days later.

The tour will resume with the first of three one-day internationals in Chittagong on March 15.
