In the running County Select XI versus Indians warm-up game, fast bowler Mohammed Siraj grabs everyone’s attention with a ripper to steer Washington Sundar back to the pavilion. Sundar, who represented the English county team, faced an unplayable bouncer from his compatriot Siraj.
The right-hand drill drilled a perfect buffer, aimed at Sundar’s shoulder. The batter had no response to the fatal delivery, as he eventually chopped the red leather to the second slip. Rohit Sharma grabbed an easy catch.
