Both the young players were part of the Indian Test squad for the recently concluded West Indies series. 

While Shaw was letting his bat do the talking for Mumbai, Siraj was impressing with the ball for Hyderabad. During the game, Siraj troubled Shaw by bowling few well-directed bouncers.

The two then briefly exchanged a few words on the pitch before Siraj resumed bowling. 

While there was no heated moment, but soon after being sledged by Siraj, Shaw responded brilliantly and smashed him for two sixes and a boundary off the final three balls of his over.
