Sri Lanka made a remarkable comeback against UAE as they won the game by 79 runs and registered their first win in T20 World Cup 2022. UAE was chasing a target of 153 but none of their batters had any answers to the opposition bowlers and eventually bundled out for a paltry 73.

However, tailender Junaid Siddique managed to impress more with the bat than the ball, with his solitary six turning out to be better than everyone else in the entire tournament, let alone the match or his team. Dushmantha Chameera was bowling the 17th over of the innings, with his seam movement having already fetched him three wickets in the game.

Junaid Siddique was facing the second ball of the over when Namibia was requiring just one wicket the opposition needed only a single dismissal to wrap up the encounter. Chameera bowled a full delivery allowing Siddique to unleash his batting prowess. He cleared his front leg and swung the bat with brute force, connecting sweetly with the white Kookaburra.
