WATCH: Frustrated Mohammed Siraj Throws The Ball at Steve Smith – WTC Final 2023

Mohammed Siraj’s frustration took centre stage during an intense moment on Day 2 of the World Test Championship final between India and Australia. The match was finely poised, with Australia starting the day at an impressive 327/3. The day took an interesting turn when Steven Smith, in the very first over, completed his century with back-to-back boundaries off the bowling of pacer Mohammad Siraj.

However, the situation quickly turned sour in the third delivery when Steve Smith unexpectedly backed out of his stance during Siraj’s run-up. This lapse in concentration was attributed to a momentary distraction caused by the spider cam. The incident visibly annoyed Siraj, who, seemingly displeased with Smith’s act, vented his frustration by throwing the ball at the stumps.

ICC WTC Final 2023: Australia Team Dominance Continues on Day 2

Australia’s dominance continued on Day 2 of the World Test Championship final against India. Starting the day at a commanding 327/3, Australia relied on the impressive performances of Travis Head, who scored a brilliant 163 runs, and Steven Smith, who contributed 121 runs. Their efforts propelled Australia to a challenging 469 runs before being all out.

When it was India’s turn to bat in the first innings, they struggled against the Australian pace attack. The Indian batters faced a tough challenge as they struggled to score runs and build partnerships. However, in the batting collapse, Ravindra Jadeja showed strength with a well-fought 48 runs, while Ajinkya Rahane remained unbeaten on 29 runs at the end of Day 2. These two batsmen provided some stability and hope for the Indian team. When play was stopped on Day 2, India had reached 151-5, still trailing behind Australia’s imposing total.
