Watch: Mohammed Siraj gives send off to Litton Das after picking latter’s wicket
In the first Test match between Bangladesh and India, Mohammed Siraj and Litton Das got involved in a verbal battle. The former won the battle as he cleaned up Das on the very next delivery. After the incident, the right-arm pacer said that he was just reminding Das that he was playing Test cricket and not a white-ball game. Now, the rivalry resumed in the ongoing second game.
In the second innings of Bangladesh, Siraj once again cleaned up Das with an inswinger. The incident happened in the 66th over of the innings and the home side led by 132 runs. After the wicket, the Hyderabad player made a gesture of a ‘finger on the lips’. Das scored 73 runs for the team. The video of the entire incident is going viral.
