IND v SA: Mohammed Siraj has been in excellent form recently, and the seamer has already made an impression in the ongoing Test against South Africa in Centurion. The 27-year-old dismissed Rassie van der Dussen for three runs, putting India on the back foot against the hosts.
Apart from his bowling, Siraj wowed the crowd with his celebration, emulating Cristiano Ronaldo’s hallmark celebration after dismissing the South African batter.
Fans posted the footage of the same on social media. “The SIIIIUUU celebration has reached the Indian camp in South Africa,” wrote Premier League India’s official Twitter handle in response to the event.

With Jasprit Bumrah out for the rest of the second session due to a horrific ankle twist, Siraj bowled a large number of overs alongside Mohammed Shami, and it will be intriguing to see if India will use the seamer, who has been off of the field for a long time but is back on the pitch. However, there appears to be some unease, indicating that Siraj and Shami may be asked to do the heavy lifting.
Meanwhile, earlier in the day, India suffered a batting collapse, losing seven wickets for 49 runs as the visitors finished their first innings on 327.
In response, South Africa got off to a rocky start, with Dean Elgar of Bumrah delivering the first breakthrough. They are now batting on 140/6 and are down 187 runs.
