IND vs ENG: Dinesh Karthik strongly criticized Siraj, ‘Shut Up’ Bairstow on the middle ground


New Delhi: During the first test match of the 5-match series between India and England, during the first test match, there was a clash between Indian fast bowler Mohammad Siraj and England’s star batsman Jonny Bairstow. Siraj celebrated in a very different way after dismissing Bairstow in this match. Now a veteran player of India has criticized Siraj.

These giants raged on Siraj

India wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik feels that it was unnecessary for Mohammad Siraj to signal ‘silence’ after dismissing England batsman Jonny Bairstow in the first Test. However, he believes that this Indian fast bowler will understand these things further in his international career. Siraj was aggressive during his celebrations after the dismissal of Bairstow and also exchanged words with the batsman several times in the drawn Test.

‘It was wrong to meet Bairstow’

Karthik, who is handling commentary during the series, wrote in ‘The Telegraph’, ‘I think it was unnecessary when Siraj indicated to keep quiet after dismissing the batsman. You have already got out so why need it? This is the first lesson in Siraj’s international career. How many of us would have thought that Virat Kohli would come and pacify the excited teammate? But the Indian captain had to ensure at Trent Bridge that Siraj did not go beyond the limit.

Karthik said, ‘I love the kind of cricket this team played. Players do not hesitate to engage in verbal arguments with their rivals as did Siraj and KL Rahul. This is new age India. Karthik, who will play for Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League next month, said there are different ways to be aggressive.

There are many ways of aggression too – Karthik

Karthik said, ‘Aggression is shown in different ways. For some players like Virat, Siraj and Rahul, this openly can happen by answering you on the face. But I have not seen senior batsmen Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane getting aggressive in the same way but that does not mean that they are not aggressive.
