Virat Kohli calms Mohammad Siraj down: England made an astonishing comeback on Day 4 of the ongoing first test between them and India and scored as much as 303 runs in their second innings. The Indian pacers had packed the hosts for a mere 183 runs in their first innings that came to a humiliating end. They have now, however, regained control of the match and are in a winning situation as well. The 4th day of the ongoing test gave us some interesting things that made it to the headlines and one specific moment involving Mohammad Siraj and Virat Kohli became fan favourites in no time.

It is a well known fact that Mohammad Siraj has totally transformed himself into a beast ever since making his debut in the Australia test series and he has been seen continuing his form in the current series against India as well. In the practice test match that India XI played against County Select XI, Mohammad Siraj was seen sledging Washington Sundar (who was playing for County XI). He was able to get under the skin of the all-rounder as he got dismissed on the very next ball. It was then estimated that Siraj’s aggressiveness can turn out to be a huge plus point for India in the England series, Mohammad Siraj showed a glimpse of the same on Day of the first test.

Siraj had already picked up 2 wickets when he came in to bowl in 74th over. On the very last delivery, he bowled a lethal bodyline bouncer to English batsman Sam Curran that missed him by a whisker. Following that, Siraj was seen walking up to Curran and chirping something loud at him. It did not go unnoticed by Indian skipper Virat Kohli who was standing just beside them. What Kohli did next has won over the internet. He called Mohammad Sirj and asked himself to calm down by hand gesture. The captain clearly did not want a young cricketer like Sam Curran to be sledged and that’s why he stopped Siraj.
