After losing the second ODI match against England, India and England met each other in Manchester on Sunday, 17 July 2022. The stage was set for an exciting series decider of this three-match ODI series as India was looking to hand England an ODI home series defeat since 2014. However, in-form pacer, Jasprit Bumrah got ruled out of the match due to some niggle. But, an incredible thing happened when Mohammed Siraj came to bowl the second over of the match.
He ended the over by not conceding any runs with two big wickets in the form of Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root. It was a perfect start for India as two big batters of England went so early in their innings without even opening their accounts. But, it has been observed that former India skipper Virat Kohli had a chat with Siraj and then, he produced that scintillating over. The video got viral and got circulated quickly over Twitter as fans also shared their timelines.
Here is the shared video:
England got bundled out for 259 runs in 45.5 overs only
Speaking about the match, India went with Mohammed Siraj in place of Jasprit Bumrah. Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to field first. Now, while batting first, England opener Jason Roy started brilliantly by smashing Shami for three boundaries in the first over of the match.
Before the next over, Virat had a chat with Siraj and he bowled some peachers before getting the wicket of Jonny Bairstow in the third ball. Then, again, Kohli was seen to go to Siraj as he had a talk with him. Then, Siraj took the wicket of Joe Root in the last ball of the over.
Speaking about the match, all England batters chipped in with some runs as they scored 259 runs in 45.5 overs. They did not bat throughout the 50-over quota. But, they ensured a fighting total for the Indians to win this match. Hardik Pandya was the pick of the bowlers as he grabbed four wickets by conceding 24 runs in seven overs.
