As soon as Jasprit Bumrah’s direct hit Australia’s A Cameron Green in the head, non-forward Mohammed Siraj dropped his bat and rushed to control the player. The SUV was bowling with Bumrah when the latter’s direct momentum went through his hands and hit him. Siraj’s gesture has taken the internet by storm and the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) shared an image showing Green on his knees after the fierce blow and Siraj standing next to him and controlling the Australian.

“Non-forward hitter Mohd Siraj was quick to check on Cameron Green, who was hit in the head by a direct shot from Jasprit Bumrah,” the BCCI tweeted.
The Green off-roader has been scrapped from the current touring game and has been replaced by Pat Rowe, according to a Fox cricket report.
Cricket Australia said Green will continue to be monitored by medical staff and his condition will be updated on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Indian bowlers put on an inspired show to take visitors back to the day-night warm-up game at Sydney Cricket Ground on Friday after being packed for 194.
It was about the Indian bowlers firing in unison.
While Mohammad Shami and Navdeep Saini chose three windows each, Jasprit Bumrah supported his maid fifty with two windows.
Mohammed Siraj also chose a wicket while still throwing a test line.
Indian bowlers shot out to knock Australia out 108 A and take a significant 86 run lead on the stumps on opening day.
