‘Felt like hitting a six but…’- Mohammed Siraj talks of his plans after India won the 2nd ODI

After India clinched a win in the 2nd ODI yesterday against the West Indies, pacer Mohammed Siraj talked about his plans.

Siraj revealed that he was planning to hit the bowler for a six in the third ball of the last over but thought it sensible to rotate the strike. The pacer was very much pumped up after watching Axar Patel bat during the final overs of the game. Axar decided to take on Kyle Mayers and when the latter bowled a juicy full-toss, Axar lost no chance and smashed it for a six that took India to a second win.

It felt completely different after watching Axar bat. He was in a different zone altogether. Mujhe bhi feel ho raha tha hi mai bhi maar dunga chakka. But sensible yehi tha ki mera single lena (I felt like hitting a six but taking a single was way more sensible)”  said Siraj.

Although West Indies did create some problems for India, the visitors remained unfazed and won the series. The foundations for the win were laid by Shubman Gill, Sanju Samson and Shreyas Iyer after Dhawan’s early departure. India won the game with just 2 balls remaining and the game became once again a thriller.

With Axar Patel smashing a six off Kyle Mayers, he also broke MS Dhoni’s 17-year-old record. The former India captain smashed more than three sixes while batting at No.7 for India against Zimbabwe in 2005. Axar Patel broke the record yesterday by smashing more than three sixes at No.7 against West Indies.
