Mohammad Siraj messed with Smith, hit the ball in anger, then replied by rolling his eyes

London: On the second day of the World Test Championship final, the Indian team came on the field with new intentions. The first goal was to break the record partnership between Steve Smith and Travis Head. But when Smith completed his 31st century in the very first over, Travis Head crossed the 150-run mark. Here the pair of Mohammad Siraj and Mohammad Shami were trying their best to find wickets. That’s why Siraj got very upset on one of Steve Smith’s actions and could not hide his frustration.

Mohammad Siraj got angry

Actually, Mohammad Siraj was throwing the first over of the day. He got upset after eating two fours in the first three balls. When he was just about to complete his run-up before bowling his fourth ball, Steve Smith, who was on strike, walked away leaving the stumps. Smith was disturbed by the positioning of the spider cam, but this went unnoticed by Siraj who, having almost thrown the ball with all his might, fumed and hit the ball towards the stumps.

India benefited from this incident
Seeing Siraj angry, Steve Smith tried to clarify by pointing to the spider camera, but the Indian speedster was not impressed at all. Before the next ball, Indian captain Rohit Sharma took a dig at Siraj and said that he would have to stop. Although this incident proved to be a boon for India and especially for Siraj. Enraged by Smith’s action, he started bowling with more vigor. As a result, the big wicket of Head went to India. Siraj ended a brilliant partnership of 285 runs.
