Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) pacer Mohammed Siraj lost his cool at Delhi Capitals wicketkeeper-batter Phil Salt during their Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Saturday. The incident happened in the penultimate over of the powerplay during DC’s chase. Salt hit Siraj for three boundaries on the trot, with two of them going all the distance. In order to bounce back, Siraj bowled a short-pitched delivery to Salt, who threw his bat at it, only for the umpire to call it a wide.
Siraj wasn’t happy with the decision as he approached Salt and gave the Englishman a mouthful. DC captain David Warner tried to act as a peacemaker, but Siraj also gave him the same treatment. The pacer was also seen making some gestures, asking Salt to keep quiet.
