The Indian fast bowler Mohammed Siraj is the number one bowler for India in the One Day Internationals. In the World ranking, he is ranked in the 2nd position. After the injury of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj has stepped up in his absence. The former cricketer RP Singh praised Mohammed Siraj for taking responsibility in the absence of India’s star fast bowler. Siraj’s rise has come up at the right time as there is a world cup in India at the end of this year.
RP Singh on Siraj
“I have been following Siraj for a long time now. When he joined the Indian team, his graph was really high and then slowly it started falling. But it is good to see that he has worked on a lot of things this time, fitness being a major point. Now if you look at the technical bit, he has worked a lot on his wrist position and follow through for which he is getting the ball top bounce better and is also bowling stump-to-stump,” said RP Singh
RP Singh further added that
“Of course, he can be a replacement for Bumrah. In fact, I feel, if his graph continues to increase he can be the next Mohammed Shami,”
After the Indian Premier League, India is going to clash with Australia in the World Test Championship. The World Test Championship is going to happen in The Oval in the month of June. Siraj is likely to play a crucial role with Shami in the Final.
