Irfan Pathan Pays Tribute to Sri Lankan Groundsmen; Shares Heartwarming Selfie With Them

It’s a wrap for Asia Cup 2023. India has grabbed the title with a huge 10-wicket win. Mohammed Siraj was the Key factor in India’s clinical win. But groundsmen were the true unsung heroes of that tournament. Everyone in the cricket fraternity thanked them wholeheartedly. Former Indian bowler Irfan Pathan took a selfie to salute those heroes. 

Groundsmen’s contribution:

Throughout this Asia Cup rain was a big factor. Almost every match got interrupted by rain in that tournament. It was very difficult to organize matches with this challenge. But here, the groundsmen of Sri Lanka have got their job done perfectly. They tried their best to make the matches happen. 

 When India vs Pakistan got called off due to rain the governing body opted for the reserve day. But also on the reserve day it was raining. They used every possible way to make the match happen. They used halogen lights to other techniques to make the pitch dry. Because of their contribution and hard work the match happened successfully.

Final scenario: 

On Sunday, just before the start of the big clash, it started raining. That’s why the match got delayed. Groundsmen tried their best to make the final uninterruptedly. Because of that hard work, ACC accomplished the tournament. ACC announced the monetary prize for the groundsmen. This is a heartwarming gesture to thank those unsung heroes.
