Mohammad Siraj vs Crowd: Two games have already been played in the ongoing 5-match test series between India and England and the mind games have reached new heights starting from the third match. If the Lord’s test was a teaser of what was about to come, it will be right to say that the day 1 of the third test was the trailer.

Team India were off to a horrible start in the third test as their top-order totally fell apart in the hands of the England pacers. The Blues’ middle order has been weak throughout the series and today was no different. Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara failed to impress as Rishabh Pant too was of no use. Nothing much could be expected from the tailenders and Team India’s first innings came to a humiliating end as they got all out for just 78 runs, one of the lowest Test scores ever in their history.

However, it was when England were batting that a remarkable brawl took place between Indian pacer Mohammad Siraj and the English fans in the crowd. When Siraj was bowling near the boundary line, the English fans started mocking him by asking the score. Luckily, Mohammad Siraj is not someone to be silenced by banters. He faced them and signalled ‘1-0’ towards them to remind that India is up in the series by one 1 win. Thus, the young Indian pacer gave the English fans a taste of their own medicine.
Mohammad Siraj has been very aggressive with his attitude and celebration during the ongoing England test from the practise matches itself. He might have been criticised by many for his attitude but he is pretty easily getting under the skin of the English players and his performance has been top-notch. So his attitude can not be held against him.
