WATCH: Mohammad Rizwan Screams In Pain As Mohammed Siraj Hits Him With An Aggressive Throw

India's fast bowler Mohammed Siraj left Pakistan's Mohammad Rizwan in noticeable pain after an unfortunate incident involving a throw aimed at the stumps. Rizwan had driven a full delivery straight back at Siraj, who collected the ball during his follow-through and attempted a direct hit to try and run out the wicketkeeper-batter. However, instead of hitting the stumps, Siraj's throw struck Rizwan's hand, causing the ball to deflect toward fine leg.

Despite the evident pain, Rizwan saw an opportunity to steal a single and took it. Siraj, realizing his mistake, quickly offered his apologies, and the two cricketers shared a moment of sportsmanship by hugging it out.
