Hilarious act by Mohammad Siraj: The ongoing test match between India and England has been delayed due to rain on Day 2 and it will be appropriate to say that the visitors have been saved by nature. Despite getting a great start to the day, India’s batting order somehow fell apart after their captain Virat Kohli departed for a golden duck, which in itself, was a shocking incident in itself.

However, now that the match has been delayed due to rain and there are no signs of it to resume today before stumps, the cricket fans have come up with resources to keep themselves entertained till the resumption of the match. A particular video of Day 1, i,e yesterday, has resurfaced after a cricket fan posted it on his twitter account and it is going crazily viral, and for a hilarious reason!
In the video that has gone viral, Indian pacer Mohammad Siraj can be seen using his fellow teammate Mohammad Shami’s sweat to shine the ball ! Yes you read it right, his sweat. The incident occured in Mohammad Shami’s over itself. The pacer was soaking wet when Mohammad Siraj casually went towards him in between deliveries, touched his forehead to take some sweat and shined the ball.

Now it is common knowledge that the shine of the ball in cricket is one of the most important factors, especially for the pacers. It decides how and by what extent the ball will swing and therefore the bowlers try to manipulate the shine of the ball as and when required. That is exactly what Mohammad Siraj was trying to do but his method gave the Indian fanbase something to laugh at.
