Chandigarh, February 7
A video involving Indian cricketers Mohammed Siraj and Kuldeep Yadav has taken the internet by storm. In the video — post-stumps scenes in the Indian dressing room — fast bowler Mohammed Siraj could be seen grabbing wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav by the back of his neck.
The incident took place after the end of Day 2 of the first Test between India and England, with the camera focusing on the Indian team dressing room.
In a short clip of five seconds, Siraj grabs Kuldeep aggressively by the back of his neck but before anything else could be seen, the camera shifts frame towards head coach Ravi Shastri.
Although the act has raised a few concerns, the context of the actions is clearly not known.
The internet is divided over the actions of Siraj whether it is questionable or simply a gesture between two friends.
Both Siraj and Kuldeep are not part of India’s Playing XI in the Chennai Test.
