The England cricket team is presently in Sri Lanka but it will be facing the Indian cricket team soon in the 4 test matches, 3 ODIs and 5 T20Is. While the Indians are high on confidence after defeating the Australians in their home, the England cricket team will also be pretty confident post whitewashing the test series against Sri Lanka in their home by 2-0.
However, a strange incident took place in the second test match which was played at Galle International Stadium. Till now, we have seen dog, birds, etc. wandering on the field because of which sometimes the match has to be halted but in the second test match between England and Sri Lanka, a monitor lizard was noticed by cameraman on the boundary.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) also took a note of it and made a funny tweet in which it wrote that the council is reviewing reports of the Sri Lankan team using an extra fielder in the second test match.
The official Twitter handle of ICC posted the photo of monitor lizard with the caption, “The ICC is reviewing reports that Sri Lanka used an extra fielder against England in Galle today. The situation will be ‘monitored’.”

Joe Root was adjudged as the Player of the Match for his knock of 186 and he was also adjudged as the Player of the Series.
That was quite a hilarious reaction by the ICC. What do you say?
