Watch! Mohammad Siraj’s hilarious post match conversation with Murali Kartik


India on Tuesday headed into New Delhi’s Arjun Jaitley stadium with confidence. Just 2 days ago they had chased down 278 set by the visitors to win by 7 wickets thanks to century by Shreyas Iyer and 93 by Ishan Kishan at Ranchi. The win meant India had tied the series at 1 all after South Africa won the 1st game by 9 runs.

India won the toss and put South Africa into bat as the match was delayed due to wet outfield due to overnight rains. Miller became the captain for the 3rd game as S. Africa fielded 3 different skippers in all 3 games.

Mohammad Siraj on fire –

It was an absolute thrill to watch Mohammad Siraj bowl as he was all fired up and was bowling quick. The 28 year old got the key wickets of Janneman Malan and Reeza Hendricks. Malan was caught by Avesh Khan off a short ball, while Hendricks was caught at fine leg by Ravi Bishnoi. Siraj was seen bowling at over 140 KPH during his early and only spell.

The hilarious chat between Kartik and Siraj –

Mohammad Siraj was named the man of the series and he was all smiles as he took to the stage. Former Indian spinner Murali Kartik said Miyan, kya bowling karte hain aap! Sahi bola mein Hyderabadi mein”. To which Siraj was all smiles and nodded in agreement before saying “Performing against a good team gives you a lot of confidence. I had to take the responsibility. I try to figure out the right lengths at the start of the innings. As a fast bowler you need that fire and passion inside you. Happy with my performance, and happy to get this Player of the Series award”

South Africa bowled out for 99 –

Kuldeep Yadav with 4 for 18 led the way as the visitors were bowled out for mere 99. Klassen with 34 was the top scorer, Shahbaz Ahmed and Sundar just like Siraj picked 2 wickets each to show the vindication of Dhawan’s faith to bowl first.

Gill and Iyer power India to easy win –

Shikhar Dhawan scored 8 on his home ground, while Kishan scored 10. Former Delhi Capitals skipper Iyer was not out on 28 as he hit the winning runs of Jansen with a six. Shubman Gill played some delightful strokes to score 49 before being out LBW to Ngidi.
