Pathirana of Sri Lankan team is currently representing Chennai Super Kings in the ongoing IPL tournament. The social media team of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) has teased their star Sri Lankan pacer Matheesha Pathirana after he was pictured celebrating his wicket in a manner that resembled the celebration of football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. Pathirana has been one of the standout performers for CSK this season, having picked up 15 wickets in 12 matches at an average of 18.85. The young pacer had earlier revealed that Ronaldo is his favorite footballer and he is a die-hard fan of the Portuguese superstar.
During a recent match against the Delhi Capitals (DC), MS Dhoni had played a crucial cameo of 20 runs from just 9 balls to give CSK the much-needed momentum towards the end of their innings. The CSK skipper had hit two sixes and a boundary off Khaleel Ahmed, before being dismissed by Mitchell Marsh in the last over. As Dhoni was walking back to the pavilion, Pathirana was seen celebrating his wicket in a manner that appeared to be a tribute to Ronaldo. The CSK social media team then tried to pull Pathirana’s leg over the incident, but the Sri Lankan pacer responded by saying that he was just stretching his quad muscles.
“Not the right moment for celebration @matheesha.pathirana_99 😁” read the caption of Chennai Super Kings.

“Bruh it’s a stretch for the quad muscles😂😂😂” reply of Pathirana read.
Here’s the screenshot of his comment :
Pathirana’s impressive performances this season have caught the attention of many, including MS Dhoni himself. The CSK skipper recently spoke about the young pacer and suggested that he should focus on playing limited-overs cricket and stay away from red-ball cricket.
“I feel he should not play red-ball cricket, not even get close to it, even play only ICC tournaments with ODIs and keep the rest as less as possible, because he’s not someone who’ll change a lot. This is what he’ll do. So you can always use him at crucial times. But make sure he’s fit and available for all the ICC tournaments and he’ll be a great asset for Sri Lanka,” said Dhoni.
Pathirana’s bowling style is suited to limited-overs cricket, where he can bowl quick, short bursts and pick up wickets with his pace and swing. His ability to generate pace and swing has made him a potent weapon for CSK this season, and he has played a key role in their success so far. Pathirana’s performances have also earned him a call-up to the Sri Lankan national team, and he will be hoping to continue his good form in the upcoming international matches.
As for CSK, they have been one of the most consistent teams in the Indian Premier League (IPL) this season. Led by the evergreen MS Dhoni, the team has shown great resilience and character, and they have managed to win several matches from seemingly impossible positions. With the likes of Faf du Plessis, Ravindra Jadeja, and Deepak Chahar in their ranks, CSK will be confident of going all the way this season and winning their fourth IPL title. Chennai is currently in the second spot in the table followed by Gujarat Titans. Rajasthan is in the third spot and Mumbai went to the fourth spot after staying in 8th spot for a long time.
