Sri Lanka’s experienced batsman Angelo Mathews was given ‘time out’ against Bangladesh in the ICC Cricket World Cup on Monday and became the first batsman to be given out like this in international cricket. In fact, after the dismissal of Sadira Samarawickram in the World Cup match against Bangladesh, as soon as Mathews reached the crease and started putting on the helmet, its strap broke. He indicated to bring another helmet from the dressing room but it took a lot of time. Meanwhile, Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan appealed for time out against Mathews and umpire Marais Erasmus declared him out. Mathews spoke to the umpire and Shakib and even showed the broken strap of his helmet but the Bangladesh captain refused to withdraw the appeal and the Sri Lankan batsman had to return.
