Mohammed Siraj Picks 4 Wickets In Single Over, Sends Twitter On Fire
Mohammed Siraj emerged as a nightmare for Sri Lanka in the match. The right-arm pacer hunted four wickets 2nd over of his spell and 4th over of the match. Siraj dismissed Pathum Nissanka, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Charith Asalanka, and Dhananjaya de Silva in his over.
However, Mohammed Siraj did not get a hat-trick even after a four-wicket haul. Siraj picked wickets on the 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 6th deliveries of his over. However, he did send the X (formerly Twitter) on fire with his lethal bowling attack. X users hailed Siraj on the social media platform. Have a look at some of the tweets.

Siraj has great skills and big heart to get a batter to edge and hit the stump on flat pitch. Mohammed Siraj will be India’s ब्रहमास्त्र at World Cup at home. @mdsirajofficial

Siraj is underrated as a bowler. Bowls at a good length & gets enough movement, economical & gets wickets! Great start for India. #IndvSL

The right-arm pacer picked one more wicket later and has grabbed 5 wickets in IND vs SL match so far. Losing 6 wickets before 10 overs, Sri Lanka have witnessed one of their worst show in ODIs. Four of their batsmen Kusal Perera, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Charith Asalanka, and Dasun Shanak got out for ducks.
India have picked Washington Sundar in the IND vs SL match as a replacement for injured Axar Patel. They also brought back all the key players, who were rested in the previous dead-rubber game against Bangladesh. For Sri Lanka, spinner Maheesh Theekshana missed the game due to injury. Dushan Hemantha has replaced the off-spinner in the playing XI.
