On September 30 (Friday), the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) designated Mohammed Siraj. As Jasprit Bumrah’s replacement due to injury. The right-arm bowler will play for India. In the final two Twenty20 Internationals against South Africa.
The senior pacer Mohammed Shami would have been a far better selection than Siraj. According to Indian supporters, who are not happy with the decision. It should be noted that Shami only recently fully recovered from Covid-19. Despite prior claims to the contrary by the Indian board.
Mohammed Siraj was ordinary in T20
In terms of Siraj‘s performance in T20Is, his final T20I match. And came against Sri Lanka in February 2022. The right-arm bowler has little to offer in the 20-over format. Having only taken five wickets in five games and having a high economy rate.
Siraj played for India in the most recent ODI series against Zimbabwe. In the series, the 28-year-old performed admirably for his club and made some significant new ball breakthroughs.
Despite not having excellent numbers in the T20I format, Siraj has proven his worth when playing for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Siraj is a particularly dangerous opponent with the new ball. Because of his capacity to swing the ball both ways. Furthermore. He has proven that he can take down yorkers in death overs.
