Royal Challengers Bangaore’s Indian pacer Mohammed Siraj and Delhi Capitals’ Englishman Phil Salt were involved in an exchange of words during RCB’s match at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi against DC in the IPL 2023.

Chasing 182, DC opened the innings with Salt and skipper David Warner. The English batsman seemed to be in brilliant touch as he dispatched Siraj for three consecutive boundaries, two of which were sixers, in the fourth over and Siraj seemed to be ruffled by the onslaught.

Siraj attempted a bouncer in the next delivery of the over, but the ball was signalled as wide by the umpire, and Siraj had a spat with the Englishman in what seemed like a heated exchange. The pacer was seen pointing his finger at the batsman with a frustrated expression on his face. Warner intervened and tried t settle the issue before the umpire had a word with the players.

Mahipal Lomror accompanied Kohli at the crease to build a crucial partnership that steadied RCB’s innings. Kohli was dismissed after he brought up another fifty in the IPL as he fell to Mukesh Kumar.

Dinesh Karthik contributed 11 runs off 9 deliveries before being sent back to the stands by Khaleel Ahmed as Lomror brought up his unbeaten fifty.

The 23-year-old ended the innings scoring an unbeaten 54 off 29 deliveries.
