After Rohit Sharma’s controversial catch during the Vijay Hazare Trophy semi-final ruffled some feathers, Team India’s young guns Prithvi Shaw and Mohammed Siraj entertained viewers with some on-pitch banter. Siraj and Shaw can be seen exchanging words in a video posted on Twitter — hopefully pleasant ones — during the ninth over of the Mumbai innings. The Mumbai side, led by Shreyas Iyer, won the semi-final by a 60-run margin through the VJD method.

In the video, Siraj can be seen testing 18-year-old Shaw, who became the youngest Indian to score a century on Test debut in the first Windies Test in Rajkot, with a variety of deliveries.

In the semi-final held in Bengaluru, Hyderabad won the toss and batted first, posting a 247-run target for Mumbai. Rohit Rayudu scored a century to help bring Hyderabad in a dominant position.

In response, Mumbai got off to an impressive start as openers Shaw and Rohit Sharma ensured a constant flow of runs. After the match was affected by rain, Mumbai made it to the final of the List A tournament after the VJD rain rule was applied.

The second semi-final of the Vijay Hazare Trophy will be held between Delhi and Jharkhand on October 18. The final will be held on October 20.
