Former Indian cricketer Parthiv Patel heaped praises on the Indian pacer Mohammed Siraj after his remarkable run in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 with Royal Challengers Bangalore. Following a successful first season of the international circuit with the Indian cricket team, Mohammed Siraj was seen in tremendous form for the Virat Kohli-led side in the 14th season of the cash-rich league, which was suspended mid-way because of the outbreak of COVID-19 within the bio-bubble.
Regarded as the next big thing in the cricket world, Mohammed Siraj has become an integral part of the Indian and RCB bowling attack. The pace sensation has turned out to be exactly the kind of bowler Virat Kohli needed in the Indian and RCB sides needed.
Speaking to Star Sports during a discussion about the IPL 2021, Parthiv Patel heaped praises about Siraj’s pace bowling heroics. Patel also praised the Indian fast bowler for nailing the yorkers in death overs.
“Absolutely they did (solving their death overs bowling woes). I thought the way Mohammed Siraj bowled this season. I think he is the story of this IPL. Everyone has spoken about Mohammed Siraj bowling well with the new ball and then not being able to bowl yorkers but this season he was nailing yorkers,”
Talking about Siraj’s performances in IPL, from restricting Andre Russell’s bid with his magical spells in the death overs to keeping Rishabh Pant at bay in his final over, Siraj has given many game-changing performances for RCB this season. In IPL 2021, Siraj picked 6 wickets from 7 appearances. So far, Siraj has bagged 45 wickets from 42 matches in his remarkable IPL career.
