Day 3 of the India versus Bangladesh test series in 2022 at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka was packed with drama. As Bangladesh's spinner, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, tore through India's top order in the second and final Test match, a heated confrontation took place between Virat Kohli and the Bangladesh players following celebratory actions directed towards him. The former captain of India was noticeably angry, stirring curiosity among the reporters about the on-ground occurrence. However, it was the response that India's pacer Mohammed Siraj gave to the inquiry about the incident that took the cake for hilarity.

Despite the intense incident, the cameras failed to capture the triggering moment for Kohli's heated reaction. Therefore, when Siraj attended the press conference at the end of Day 3, a reporter probed him for details about the encounter.

To which he replied “To be honest, uss time mein ice bath le raha tha. I swear Mujhe nehi pata kya Huya tha uss time (I was taking an ice bath at that moment. So, I did not see what happened then),” said Siraj in the aftermath of the third day’s play.

Their efforts set the Indian team on track for the ultimate 2-0 series victory against Bangladesh in Dhaka.

Reflecting on the extremely competitive series, Pujara admitted to having invested a great deal of hard work, not only in refining his game skills but also by participating in first-class games to keep his form intact.
