Indian cricket team pace bowler Mohammed Siraj might have just bowled the ball of his cricket career to dismiss New Zealand veteran batsman Ross Taylor in the 2nd Test match in Mumbai.
The 2nd Test match of the series between the host’s Indian cricket team and New Zealand cricket team is being played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
