hey this was the moment sri lanka won their first test victory in 19985 beating india in the 2nd test at P. sara stadium , colombo. kapil was playing sheet anchor role and was the wall. Romesh was in full flow with many wickets in that match. it was a costly mistake from kapil who gave a return catch to Romesh who dived to his right. Then history was created.

The non-striker is looking at Kapil and is like "what on earth have you done?"
