3 times Mohammed Siraj was involved in a heated exchange with the opposition 

Mohammed Siraj has become one of India’s best fast bowlers in the longer formats of the game after three heated arguments with the opposition. At the Adelaide Oval in January 2019, he played his first one-day international against Australia. Siraj has made steady progress despite not being able to make an immediate impact.

Siraj has represented the Indian cricket team in 14 Tests and 16 One-Day Internationals thus far in his international career. Concerning his statistics, Siraj has a fantastic bowling average of 29.35 and has taken 43 wickets in 27 Test innings. His highest match percentage was 8/126.

In 16 ODI innings played under the 50-over format, Siraj has taken 24 wickets at an economy rate of fewer than five runs per over. Although his numbers are quite impressive, they do not accurately reflect Siraj’s aggressive play on the field.

Indian batters were frequently sledged by foreign fast bowlers in the past, but Siraj has been involved in a heated argument with the following three batters.

#1 Mohammed Siraj vs Litton Das

During the current Test match between Bangladesh and India at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Mohammed Siraj and Bangladesh batsman Litton Das engaged in a verbal altercation. In the first innings, Siraj, an Indian fast bowler, asked Das to play sensible cricket after Das defended a delivery.

Das went about as though he didn’t pay attention to what Siraj said as he motioned him to boisterously talk. On the following conveyance, Siraj shocked Das with his speed and shook his stumps. As the two Indian players bid farewell to Litton, Virat Kohli joined Siraj in his aggressive celebrations.

Following the conclusion of the play that day, Siraj revealed the following when questioned about what he said to Litton Das:

“No, nothing. I just told him it’s not T20 format. This is Test cricket, so play sensible cricket.”.

#2 Mohammed Siraj vs Najmul Hossain Shanto

In a three-match One-Day International series earlier this month, Bangladesh and India fought. Despite Bangladesh’s 2-1 series victory, the Indian team put in some outstanding performances. Mohammed Siraj, who threw the Bangladeshi batters off balance and acted aggressively, was one of them.

Siraj sledged Najmul Hossain Shanto in the second one-day international of the series. In the eighth over of the innings, the Bangladeshi batter hit him for a four.

He was then defeated twice by Siraj in the subsequent two punches. The Indian pacer quickly got close to his opponent and spoke to him, but the conversation was missed by the stump mic.

#3 Mohammed Siraj Vs James Anderson

Siraj argued with veteran England pacer James Anderson during India’s tour of England in 2021. The incident occurred on the third day of Nottingham’s first Test match in the series.
Siraj was unable to hit a shot on a delivery that was bowled by Anderson. After that, the two players had a conversation, but the stump microphone didn’t record it.
