IND vs SL: Mohammed Siraj and Kuldeep Yadav imitate umpire in a funny sequence

In the second T20I, the coin landed in Rohit Sharma’s favor and he decided to bowl first. As the number one T20I side meant business on the field, two of the players warming the bench decided to come out and have some fun as a stress-buster but, at the expense of the umpire. They were pacer Mohammed Siraj and chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav.

This happened in the 10th over bowled by leggie Yuzvendra Chahal. On the penultimate delivery, Charith Asalanka looked to sweep Chahal but, he missed it as the ball rapped him on the pads. A huge appeal was made by the Indian players and the on-field umpire raised his finger. The batter decided to get it reviewed. The Hawk Eye suggested that the ball would have clearly hit the stumps and the third umpire urged the on-field umpire to stay with his original decision.

While the umpire was about to raise his finger, both Kuldeep and Siraj mischievously raised their index fingers from behind and the video went viral on social media in no time.

Coming back to the contest, Sri Lanka were reduced to 76/3 after 11 overs but, Pathum Nissanka who was dismissed for a golden duck in the first game rediscovered his rhythm and played a superb knock. He scored 75 runs off 53 deliveries before being sent back on the final ball of the penultimate over. Skipper Dasun Shanaka finished the innings in style for the visitors by clobbering medium-pacer Harshal Patel for 23 runs in the final over to finish at 183/5 from their 20 overs.
