India’s veteran all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin sheds light on the recent snake intrusion during a Lanka Premier League (LPL) match, pointing to the difficulty in controlling such incidents due to Sri Lanka’s forest surroundings.
Unusual Turn of Events at LPL
The ongoing Lanka Premier League has been a roller-coaster ride for cricket enthusiasts, offering nail-biting thrillers and unforgettable moments. However, the spotlight recently shifted to an unexpected and bizarre occurrence – the appearance of snakes on the field during the matches. The incident left players and spectators astounded.
Sri Lanka’s Forest Challenge
Amid this unconventional disruption, Ravichandran Ashwin, an esteemed figure in the Indian cricket scene, shared his insights on the issue. He highlighted the fact that Sri Lanka’s surroundings, dominated by dense forests, pose a unique challenge in managing such incidents effectively.
Ashwin delved into the incident, referencing a trending video where a snake came dangerously close to Isuru Udana during a match. Though uncertain about the snake’s venomous nature, Ashwin emphasized the inherent fear that players experience upon encountering such situations. He acknowledged the limitations of cricket authorities in dealing with this unusual challenge.
Construction and Wildlife
Ashwin raised a crucial point regarding the ongoing construction activities in areas inhabited by wild animals. Coupled with Sri Lanka’s forest-rich environment, this urban expansion has inadvertently increased interactions between wildlife and human activities. He suggested that proactive measures from authorities could benefit both the players and the local wildlife.
Snake on the Chase
The viral video captured the snake’s intrusion during Jaffna’s chase. As the snake crawled onto the field, it triggered a reaction from Kandy pacer Isuru Udana, who swiftly retreated. Despite the unexpected interruption, the game eventually resumed.
