Paine adds mystery after camera captures questionable Siraj Jadeja moment – Watch | cricket

In the first test between India and Australia in Nagpur, the hosts dictated what happened on the opening day. Australia, choosing to bat first, were bundled for 177, after which India stacked 77/1 on the board before the umpires called for stumps. With the hosts just 100 runs behind and nine wickets remaining, India appeared in a solid position to take a strong lead on their opponents when action resumes on Day 2.

Rohit Sharma, who has already reached his half-century, will continue India’s attack along with R Ashwin, who has yet to open his account. Australia, on the other hand, will be hoping for a turnaround to get back into the competition.

Ravindra Jadeja, who earned his first international cap after returning from injury, was the star from the Indian camp. The all-rounder injected five blows, including the precious scalps of Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne.

However, debate over a viral video featuring Jadeja and Mohammed Siraj sparked a reaction from former Australia captain Tim Paine. The incident came when Australia had already lost half their side with just 120 on the board when Alex Carey and Peter Handscomb batted down the middle.

The TV show captured Jadeja and Siraj together, with footage suggesting something was exchanged between the two, but with no clear evidence. Jadeja then rubbed his index finger and continued bowling.

A fan shared the video on Twitter, tagging Paine and asking the former captain to share his views. Paine was quick to respond when he tweeted “Interesting.”

Meanwhile, Jadeja said he was delighted with his performance which put India in charge. “Very happy with the way I bowled. Playing Test cricket after five months is tough. I was prepared for this and have worked hard on my fitness as well as my skills at the NCA.

“I played a first class game (Ranji) after a long time and bowled almost 42 overs. It gave me a lot of confidence to come here and play a friendly,” said the all-rounder after the end of Day 1.
