Bhanuka Rajapaksa smashed a 48-ball 77 to help Sri Lanka secure first-ever series win vs Pakistan. They have an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
Sri Lanka piled up 182/6 batting first, and Bhanuka was their top scorer. In reply, Pakistan was bowled out on 147 in 19 overs. Nuwan Pradeep picked up four wickets to keep the host nation in trouble.
But it was Bhanuka's innings which was acknowledged with Player of the Match award.
Angelo Matthews, the senior Sri Lanka cricketer, praised Bhanuka for his outstanding show. But more than his performance, what attracted the fans was his twitter handle. It was bizarre and funny. "What a player @b489d6a639c949c #bhanuka fantastic knock????????????," wrote Matthews.
Bhanuka's Twitter username, which is @b489d6a639c949c, left Twitterati giggling. They were surprised to see such a unique username of a celebrity.
