When Australia and India compete against one another on the international stage, it is anticipated that things will get heated.

It happens early on the day of the World Test Championship final at the Oval as Mohammed Siraj and Steve Smith exchange a few words after the batter left while the bowler was in the middle of his delivery stride.

The day got off to a bad start when Siraj bowled back-to-back half-volleys. It allowed Smith to easily hit consecutive boundaries and reach his 31st Test century.  Sunil Gavaskar expressed his dissatisfaction with the team’s performance and questioned the start.

After Smith withdrew from delivery due to problems with the Spider-cam. The tense situation got worse when Siraj angrily threw the ball back at the stumps. Siraj was not persuaded despite Smith’s explanation. But this incident ended up being a turning point for India.

Mohammed Siraj launched a barrage of hurried deliveries in response to the incident, causing Head problems. He finally made a breakthrough when he bowled Head caught behind for a good 163, ending their 285-run partnership.

Matthew Hayden was taken aback by India’s sluggish beginning with the ball and emphasized the importance of Steve Smith not receiving any advantages. India eventually succeeded in impacting the situation and limiting the Australian batsmen despite their initial struggles.

On the second day of the World Test Championship final, India is attempting to recover and regain control of the game.
