How to recall the terrible accident that occurred in Kandy 20 years ago


Kusal Mendis and Shehan Jayasuriya collided with Sri Lanka-New Zealand in their second T20 cricket match which took the fans 20 years.

This was due to a similar accident on September 10, 1999 in Kandy.

The accident occurred on the second day of the first test match between Sri Lanka and Australia at the Asgiriya Stadium in Kandy.

The two injured players were Australian captain Steve Waugh and fast bowler Jason Gillespie.

The accident had taken place after Mahela Jayawardene had hit a couple of shots to save the ball.

Steve Waugh and Jason Gillespie were forced to withdraw from the game due to an accident, and both were admitted to a Colombo hospital.

Steve Waugh played in the second game, but lost the match in Gillespie.
