DRS means "Don't Review Siraj": Siraj inspires Wasim Jaffer

Indian captain Virat Kohli was dealt a huge tragedy when he lost two DRS reviews off the bowling of pacer Mohammed Siraj after the replays confirmed the umpire was correct on both occasions. Kohli, who was in desperate need of England captain Joe Root's wicket, bowed down to the pressure from Siraj, whose humbling and strong appeal to take a DRS call was acted upon by a hesitant Kohli. This involuntary on-field decision-making made former India player Wasim Jaffer give a funny definition to the term 'DRS', as he tweeted "DRS: Don't Review Siraj," and added a taunting emoji.

 

India turned up for Day 2 of the second Test following KL Rahul's unimaginable century on the first day at Lord's. However, Rahul fell to Robinson on the second ball of the day while James Anderson also claimed Ajinkya Rahane on his very first ball of Day 2. Anderson went on to take his 31st five-wicket haul as India was bundled out for 364 in their first innings. England in reply got off to a slow start before Siraj struck twice to remove Dominic Sibley and Haseeb Hameed in successive deliveries in the first over after Tea.

Root and Burns steadied England's ship as they took the score past 100. Burns seemed set for a well-deserved half-century but was scalped by Mohammed Shami for 49 in the final hour of the day's play. Middle-order batsman Jonny Bairstow survived a tough little period of movement under lights, while Joe Root came close to crossing the 50-run mark for the third time in the series, as he finished the day on 48. At stumps, England was at 119/3 and still 245 runs behind India's score.
