Watch: Udana refuses to run injured batter out in MSL

Sri Lankan pacer Isuru Udana who plays for Paarl Rocks in the Mzansi Super League displayed brilliant sportsmanship against Nelson Mandela Bay Giants when he refused to run Marco Marais out.

Isuru Udana was bowling the 19th over with the batting team requiring 30 runs off the last two overs. With 28 needed off the last 8 balls, Heino Kuhn smashed right back at the non-striker’s end. The ball hit Marais and he fell on the ground.

Mzansi Super League’s official Twitter handle shared a video of the “spirit of cricket” display by Udana. “Spirit of cricket. Raise your hand for more moments like this! Always,” the video was captioned.

After opting to field, Bay Giants reduced Paarl Rocks for 168 for five in their quota of 20 overs.

Paarl Rocks successfully defended the total and registered a 12-run win over Nelson Mandela Bay Giants.
Tabraiz Shamsi picked up two wickets for 25 runs and was adjudged player of the match for his economical spell.
