Niroshan Dickwella played an important knock in the ongoing first Test between West Indies and Sri Lanka in Antigua. His knock of 96 ensured that the Sri Lankan side posted a target of 375 in front of the West Indies team. However, during the innings, there was a strange change observed in Dickwella's jersey. He had removed K from Dickwella and this was visible during the ongoing first Test match between West Indies and Sri Lanka.
The wicketkeeper-batsman was spotted wearing a jersey with a different name than the usual one. His jersey during his knock was observed to have a Dickwella spelled as 'Dicwella.' The reason for changing the name on the jersey is still unknown. Nothing was revealed regarding the reason behind dropping 'K' from the name of the player. But it seems he has taken the decision after getting trolled on social networking sites.
Nevertheless, the left-handed batsman gave one more reason to remember the knock which was played in Sri Lanka's second innings of the first Test. Unfortunately, even after playing a superb knock, the 27-year-old missed out on his maiden Test century, something which he has been deprived of on many occasions during his career so far. This was the second time that he has been dismissed in the nervous nineties. Earlier in 2021, he was dismissed for 92 runs against England in the home series.
