WATCH : Siraj’s sportsmanship gesture after unawarely hurting Rizwan


Winning the toss and choosing to field first turned out to be a winning strategy for Pakistan as their pace attack dismissed India for 119 with an over to spare, despite several rain interruptions early on.

To keep India’s hopes alive, captain Rohit Sharma handed the new ball to Mohammed Siraj, pairing him with Arshdeep Singh. Siraj quickly made his presence felt.

In his first over, Siraj conceded just a single run in the first five balls. He then bowled a fuller delivery that Mohammad Rizwan played back down the pitch, stepping a few paces down the track for a potential run.

Siraj fielded the ball and, noticing Rizwan out of his crease, made a hasty throw towards the stumps. Unfortunately, his throw was errant, striking Rizwan on the tricep with considerable force, causing visible discomfort to the wicketkeeper-batter.

Recognizing his mistake, Siraj immediately approached Rizwan and patted him on the back in a gesture of apology. This incident quickly became a hot topic on Twitter, with many users commenting on the sportsmanship and the unexpected drama on the field.
