The second match of the five-match Test series between India and England is being played at Lord’s. The second day of the Test was named after the English team and after India were all out for 364, England were bowled out for 119 at the end of the day. Siraj took two wickets for India. However, due to Siraj’s mistake, Team India had to miss two consecutive reviews. Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer has trollted the Indian fast bowler and named DRS over Siraj.
Wasim Jaffer renamed the DRS on Twitter after Siraj ruined the review twice. He wrote, ‘DRS: Don’t take Siraj’s review.’ In fact, in the 21st over of the England innings, Siraj’s ball fell to Joe Root’s pad, and then the Indian fast bowler forced Kohli to take the DRS. Virat took the review, but the ball missed a leg stump. After just one over, the 23rd over, the ball hit the root pad again and Team India players, including Siraj, made a strong appeal. This time Siraj asked the captain to take the DRS, but he did not push. When captain Kohli asked Rishabh Pant to take a review, Pant denied it. Although Pant repeatedly refused, Kohli eventually took the DRS and the ball again lost a leg stump. This time, Pant tried to stop Kohli from taking the DRS, but Virat laughed and used the criticism. The video has become quite viral on the social networking site.

Batting in 364 runs, the English team did not get off to a good start and showed Mohammed Siraj Dominic Sibley (11) and Haseed Hamid an open pavilion. Rory Burns then added 85 for the third wicket with captain Joe Root. Before the end of the day, Ishant Sharma comforted Team India by scoring 49 runs for Burns. Johnny Bairstow is backing the captain with 6 runs while Root is standing in the crease after scoring 48.
