Siraj is on fire! Royal Challengers Bangalore’s star bowler Mohammed Siraj left everyone in awe of him as he took a stunning catch to dismiss the big fish Jos Buttler in the ongoing IPL 2022 clash between Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.
Rajasthan Royals’ star all-rounder Jos Buttler is currently enduring the best phase of his T20 career. He has been giving terrific performances in the ongoing 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League. Talking about the numbers, so far, he has already scored 499 runs in the tournament in just 8 games at an average of 71.29. He has scored 3 centuries and two half-centuries in the ongoing season so far.
Buttler’s current IPL form was supposed to be a key for Rajasthan Royals, who aim to go level higher with Gujarat Titans on top of the points table, however, the star all-rounder couldn’t give his team the much-needed start as he was dismissed after scoring just 8 runs off 9 balls.
The dismissal took place on the first ball of the 5th over of the innings, when Josh Hazlewood managed to get better off the in-form batter. Hazlewood delivered a short-length ball just outside off. Jos Buttler looked to pull however doesn’t time it well, he hit it to mid-on where Siraj was standing. He ran forward and took a superb catch, by diving low to his left.
The video of the stunning catch has been making rounds on the internet. Watch the video:
