During the English innings, in the 15th over, Mohammed Siraj Bowled over an off-stump full-length delivery which knocked off Haseeb Hameed. The batsman miscalculated and ended up getting off the field with the stumps rattled off. After some struggle, Haseeb got the chance to play in the test match, but it turned out to be a no winning affair for him.
Haseeb Hameed was playing a test match again after a long gap of five years. He got selected after a decent performance in the warm-up games against the Indians. Although the player made his comeback into the game with great confidence, he was severely out of form. As a result, he got knocked off by Mohammed Siraj in the fifteenth over in the test match.
The game did not turn out to be in favor of England. After the tea break, Dom Sibley had to take the pain of leg-side ploy. One can definitely say that the Indian team was far more prepared than England’s team. However, England players adjusted and played accordingly, keeping India at bay for as long as they could.
This test match could have been an unforgettable event for Haseeb Hameed, but it turned out otherwise. Many fans were expecting a great delivery from his bat on the field but were rather left disappointed. On the other hand, Mohammed Siraj’s golden duck was praised and became a spotlight for news.
The spinner is in pretty good form and is expected to give a wonderful performance in the remaining matches of the tournament. Let’s hope to get some eye-catching cricket moments from this series, just like Mohammed Siraj’s attempt at knocking off players from the field.
