Mohammed Siraj opens up about run-in with James Anderson during India’s 2021 Test tour of England

During India’s 2021 Test tour of England, Mohammed Siraj had a run-in with James Anderson during the 33-run stand between Jasprit Bumrah and Siraj for the 10th wicket in Nottingham. India gained the early edge during the first Test match of the series. After dismissing England for 183 in the first innings, they reached a tricky 205-7 before the lower order added 73 for the last three wickets. This included a 33-run stand between Bumrah and No.11 Siraj. Bumrah made 28 in 34 balls with three fours and a six, while Siraj, playing only his sixth Test match, remained unbeaten on seven as India took a vital lead.

Siraj’s comments to Anderson reminiscent of Kohli’s press conference in 2014

Nearly two years later, Siraj re-lived Anderson’s frustration at the wagging Indian tail on Breakfast with Champions. Siraj said, « I was batting and Anderson was bowling. Me and Jassi-bhai [Bumrah] were batting and for us, every ball is a free hit – just swing the bat every time. Anderson came up to me and abused me. I felt angry and told him, ‘wait till you come out to bat against me.’ When he walked out to bat, I went up to him and said, ‘You’ve taken 600 wickets but I don’t care. You have no respect for me.’ Anderson was quite angered by that and walked up to [Indian captain] Virat Kohli and told him: ‘What is he thinking? Is he mad or what?’ My words affected him, hurt his ego. »

Siraj’s comments to Anderson are reminiscent of Kohli’s press conference in 2014. Kohli had taken a dig at Mitchell Johnson after the latter, in his follow-through, had thrown the ball at him in the Melbourne Test match. A 26-year-old Kohli had said: « I was really annoyed with him hitting me with the ball, and I told him that’s not on. ‘Try and hit the stumps next time, not my body.’ You have got to send the right message across. I am not there to take to some unnecessary words or chats from someone. »

In the next Test, at Lord’s, Anderson would also accuse Bumrah of « cheating » for purposely bowling fast at him. That match ended in Siraj knocking over Anderson’s stumps as India scripted a historic win.

Conclusion

In conclusion, Mohammed Siraj’s run-in with James Anderson during India’s 2021 Test tour of England shows the intensity of the game and the emotions that come with it. Siraj’s comments to Anderson are reminiscent of Kohli’s press conference in 2014, where he took a dig at Mitchell Johnson. These incidents show that players are not afraid to speak their minds and stand up for themselves on the field. It also highlights the importance of respecting your opponents and sending the right message across.
