  • Mohammed Siraj sacks South African Rassie van der Dussen
  • Siraj burst into Cristiano Ronaldo’s famous “siu” celebration
  • Premier League India’s official pseudonym reacted to Siraj’s celebration

It all happened in the first hour of the second session of the third day of the Boxing Day test at Centurion, as the Indian leaders were all over the South African lead peloton. Jasprit Bumrah before twisting his ankle provided the visitors with the first breakthrough by removing Proteas skipper Dean Elgar in the very first heat.

After lunch, Mohammed Shami got the ball rolling by knocking out hitters Keegan Peterson and Aiden Markram and disturbing the woods of both. If that wasn’t enough, Mohammed Siraj decided to step into the act by getting the better of Rassie van der Dussen and the hosts were reduced to 32/4. However, what caught everyone’s attention was the follow-up to van der Dussen’s sacking.

The moment Ajinkya Rahane picked up the hold standing in the ravine, Siraj jumped in and performed the famous ‘siii’ (also known as siu) celebration, which is the hallmark style of star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo.

“Si” in Spanish means “yes”. Ronaldo after a goal jumps and lands and shouts the word because most of the time the crowd also happily reacts with the footballer. Siraj’s recreation of the same was not lacking in the eyes of football fans as the official Premier League grip India responded as well.

The Premier League wrote: “The celebration 𝗦𝗜𝗜𝗜𝗨𝗨𝗨𝗨 has reached the @BCCI camp in South Africa 😅.”

After losing four wickets fairly quickly, South Africa was in big trouble before vice-captain Temba Bavuma and wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock sewed a 72-point stand for the fifth wicket in order to organize a little return for the hosts. The man with the golden arm, Shardul Thakur, was in the game again, offering India a major breakthrough in the form of de Kock as the Proteas half-full returned to the flag at 104.

South Africa have followed 218 tea races and would hope for long runs from Bavuma to bring them closer to India’s total of 327 races.
