Mohammad Siraj and Liton Das involved in a war of words
Mohammad Siraj was bowling at the top of his game when Liton Das came in to bat. Siraj beat Das with a peach of a delivery. Das was looking to attach but completely missed reading the ball. Siraj threw a few words at him to which he replied in animated action.
Mohammad Siraj did not escalate the situation at the moment and went back on his run up. However, in the very next delivery, Mohammad Siraj bowled Liton Das with a beautiful inswinger. The stumps shattered, and Siraj had the last laugh.
Siraj and his slip cordon, Virat Kohli, gave Liton Das a perfect send-off by animating Das’s own gesture that he showed to Siraj earlier. Surely the duo enjoyed the right-hander’s wicket.
