Dickwella's savage sledge to under-fire Khawaja


//

Australian batsman Usman Khawaja might have gotten himself some much-needed runs in the second innings, but not before being subejcted to a savage sledge.

Khawaja was in early into his innings when Sri Lankan wicketkeeper Niroshan Dickwella decided to make a connection between the under-fire star and the Marsh brothers.

"No runs under his belt, no runs under his belt," Dickwella said.

"I only remember Marsh brothers here."

After a brief back-and-forth where Khawaja questioned the Sri Lankan about the tape on Kasun Rajitha's fingers, Dickwella continued his verbal spray.

"I really wish you could get some runs here," he said.

"I don't want you to feel bad after the series watching your team play on TV."

Following the hilarious exchange, Dickwella explained the thought process behind his savage Khawaja sledge to Fox Cricket's Neroli Meadows.

"He's trying to get some runs under his belt and I know he was struggling in the series and we want to make it harder for him," he said.

2018 was a mixed bag for Khawaja, after he begun the year in perfect fashion with a century in the Sydney Test against England.

After he was Australia's best batsman in the Pakistan series, Khawaja has gone through one of the worst stretches of his career, passing 50 just once in his last seven innings.

Australia dismissed the tourists for just 215 early on day three, but opted to bat again despite holding a whopping 319-run lead.
