Odisha STA Raises Road Safety Awareness Using Angelo Mathews’ ‘Timed Out’ Dismissal

Bhubaneswar: In a World Cup match between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh on Monday, cricket fans worldwide were left stunned by the unprecedented ‘timed out’ dismissal of Sri Lankan all-rounder Angelo Mathews. This unique dismissal occurred when Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan appealed after Mathews failed to prepare to take strike within the prescribed two-minute time limit. The controversy stemmed from Mathews’ helmet troubles.

This remarkable incident has not only gripped cricket enthusiasts but also garnered attention in an unexpected place – the Odisha State Transport Authority (STA). Taking inspiration from Mathews’ dismissal, the STA utilized its official social media platform to raise awareness among commuters about the importance of wearing helmets while on the road.

In a tweet, the STA emphasized the message, stating, “Road Safety lesson from World Cup 2023: Don’t squander your chances on the road; aim for a safe and enduring journey. Always opt for ISI-certified helmets and ensure they are securely fastened. Let’s also encourage pillion riders to do the same.” This message underscores the idea that safety should be a priority, whether on the cricket field or the roads.
