But an incident in the second innings grabbed eyeballs when Mohammed Siraj was seen engaging in a verbal fight with Delhi Capitals’ (DC) openers Philip Salt and David Warner. After getting smashed for a couple of sixes and a four in the first three deliveries of the fifth over, Siraj bowled a wide ball. That’s when Salt was seen saying something to Siraj, which triggered the fast bowler and the three got into an argument.
