After surviving an injury scare on Day 1, Mohammed Siraj, to the sheer pleasure of Indian fans, walked out at the Wanderers alongside his teammates as they took the field against South Africa to begin the second day’s play in Johannesburg.

“Siraj will definitely be okay. We have seen it happen to him in the past and he will come and give his best, I am sure. You can’t really control what happens to your body and the injuries are part and parcel of the sport. Knowing Siraj, he would give his best. I keep my fingers crossed, hoping it goes the best way for him,” Ashwin said early on Day 2.

The right-arm seamer had picked up an injury as he tried to deliver the final ball of his fourth over during the first day’s play. After a careful assessment by the physio, Siraj was seen hobbling off the field with concerns growing in the Indian dressing room.

After the early dismissal of Aiden Markram (7), the visiting team will be eager to add more names to the wickets column in a bid to peg South Africa back on Day 2 and strengthen their position in the ongoing 2nd Test.
