You don't often see Kumar Sangakkara, one of the legends of the game, show animated aggression on and off the field. However, on Friday, during the Qualifier 2 of IPL 2024 between Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad, the unthinkable happened.

The camera focused on Sangakkara, the Rajasthan Royals head coach, when Travis Head tried to play a short ball off Sandeep Sharma over third man. However, there was no pace offered, letting Head's life look miserable. The ball went straight into the hands of R Ashwin, and with that, the hard-hitting Australian fell for a 28-ball 34.

Considering the fact that Head is a big-game player, and SRH lost Aiden Markram, Rahul Tripathi, and Abhishek Sharma already, Sangakkara could not control himself from celebrating Head's wicket in an aggressive manner. Head, on the other hand, shouted in anger as soon as he made the connection with the ball: he knew he was gone.
