In the ongoing County Select XI versus Indians warm-up game, fast bowler Mohammed Siraj grabbed everyone’s attention with a ripper to send Washington Sundar back to the pavilion. Sundar, who was representing the English county team, faced an unplayable bouncer from his fellow countryman Siraj.
The right-armer bowled a perfect bumper, targeting the shoulder of Sundar. The batter had no reply to the lethal delivery as he ended up edging the red-leather towards the second slip, where captain Rohit Sharma grabbed an easy catch.
