Mohammad Siraj took 4 wickets in the first innings.
India scored 296 runs in the first innings.
New Delhi. In Test cricket, fatigue speaks on the heads of the players. The biggest example of this was seen in the World Test Championship Final (WTC Final), when Marnus Labushen was seen sleeping after fielding. But Team India’s star bowler Mohammed Siraj did not let him rest much. Siraj showed the way to the pavilion to David Warner on his sensational delivery. After which Labushen’s sleep opened rapidly.
The Indian team scored 296 runs in the first innings on the basis of half-century innings of Ajinkya Rahane and Shardul Thakur. Despite this, Team India was 173 runs behind. After the batters, all the responsibility fell on the bowlers and Siraj started wreaking havoc as soon as he arrived. Mohammed Siraj first spoiled Labushen’s sleep by taking Warner’s wicket, then gave him deep pain after Labushen came to the field. Labushen was defeated by Siraj’s high speed ball and his finger was hurt. After which the bat was also left out of Labushen’s hand.
