A video by Sri Lanka’s One-day International (ODI) skipper Lahiru Thirimanna went viral on social media as it reminded Pakistan fans of the special video of the captured Indian Air force pilot Abhinandan Varthaman.
While speaking in the video shared on his Twitter account, Thirimanna said that he is looking forward to the upcoming limited-overs series against Pakistan.
“We are really excited for the Pakistan tour,” said Thirimanna “We want to showcase that we are as good as our tea.”
However, fans from Pakistan were quick to link Thirimanna’s video with the interrogation video of the captured Indian Air force pilot Abhinandan.
The Indian pilot’s words “Tea is fantastic” in the interrogation video took social media by storm earlier this year.Social media users troll Abhinandan and India commenting on the video of Sri Lankan captain.
Star Crickter Wahab Riaz replied Thirimanna by tweeting a video in which he has advised Thirimanna not to think too much about it because decision is going to be made on the field.
