New Zealand pacer Trent Boult went for a sweep shot against Sri Lanka during the first Test match at Galle only to get the ball stuck on the helmet. The on-going Test match is taking place in Sri Lanka which started on Aug 14, 2019. This incident took place on Day 2 when Boult faced a delivery from Lasith Embuldeniya. Boult attempted a sweep where the ball took a top edge and got stuck into his helmet grill. When this happened Sri Lankan players started running here and there on the field for few seconds to search the ball, interestingly even Boult himself was initially not aware where exactly the ball was. The ball was taken out of the grill and the match resumed after checking Boult's condition. Let us see how Twitter reacts on this unbelievable cricketing incident.

Earlier New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson won the toss and elected to bat first. The first day ended with New Zealand scoring 203/5 with 22 overs lost due to rain. The visitors did not get a good start to their day as they lost their last 5 wickets for just 46 runs as New Zealand got all out on 249 runs. Suranga Lakmal wrapped up the Kiwis batting line up on the second day of the Test match where his first victim was Ross Taylor who played a fine knock of 86 runs. Lakmal ended up with the figure of 29/4 in 15.2 overs. Now let us see some hilarious comments by Twitterati for this Trent Boult incident.
