Mohammed Siraj’s heartwarming reaction after Australia’s Test hopeful Cameron Green copped a fierce blow from the bat of Jasprit Bumrah earned plaudits on social media.
Green was in his second spell of the tour match against India at the SCG when Bumrah clubbed a straight drive straight back at the bowler which hit the 21-year-old flush on the side of the head.
Non-striker batsman Mohd Siraj quickly rushed to check on Cameron Green, who got hit on the head by a Jasprit Bumrah straight drive.

Siraj, who was at the non-striker’s end, dropped his bat and immediately rushed to check on Green who was forced to sit on the pitch before being attended by team doctors.
After being examined for a minute or two, he left the field for further assessment in the dressing room.
