Indian pacer Mohammed Siraj has been the talk of the town ever since his Test debut for the Indian Cricket Team against Australia earlier this year. The young pacer has shown a lot of promise and has already produced some of the most heroic performances that will be etched in Indian cricketing history.
Be it the magical 5-wicket haul against Australia in the famous Gabba victory, or the 8 wickets in Lord’s win, Mohammed Siraj has never backed out of a fight. What is exciting about him is the energy and the sheer confidence that he portrays while bowling. Apart from making the ball talk, Siraj himself is constantly involved in a lot of chat with the opposition players and fans.
Mohammed Siraj Cheekily Trolls The England Fans
Mohammed Siraj was subjected to racial slurs while in Australia. The English fans have been no less as they have come down hard on the entire Indian team. On Wednesday, as India took on England in the 3rd Test of the five-match series at Headingley, the English supporters showed no mercy to the Indian players.
After a woeful first day on the field for the visitors, the English fans kept constantly bullying the Indian players towards the end of the day’s play. They were constantly chirping to Mohammed Siraj in the 39th over, while he was placed at the deep mid-wicket boundary. However, Mohammed Siraj, staying calm as ever, reminded the English fans of the series scoreline as he signalled 1-0 with his hands.

Now, wicketkeeper-batsman, Rishabh Pant has revealed that some English fans also threw a ball at Mohammed Siraj and Indian skipper Virat Kohli was extremely angry at the entire episode.
Englishmen Dominate Day 1 Of The Headingley Test
The England Cricket Team completely outplayed India on the first day of the Headingley Test. After having won the toss, Virat Kohli elected to bat first. However, what unfolded was nothing short of a nightmare for the India National Cricket Team as the entire team was sent back to the pavilion on just 78 runs.
English openers Haseeb Hameed and Rory Burns got the team to a flyer as they contributed 120 runs for the opening stand and remained not out at the end of the day’s play as team England sits in the driver’s seat with a lead of 42 runs and all the 10 wickets in hand.
