Ashish Nehra has advised Mohammed Siraj to focus on his strengths in his international career. The Hyderabad-based bowler took 14 wickets at an average of 30.71 in the four Tests against the hosts. While reviewing the performance of the visitors on Sony Sports, Ashish Nehra stated that Siraj should rely more on his outswing deliveries.
“Mohammed Siraj should never forget what his strengths are. We saw a lot of scrambled seam and a lot of wickets on inswing but the outswing, which was his strength, we saw that less and the England tour has passed, where there was a chance to bowl outswing. The expectation is that he will learn from this.”
Siraj bowled a lot of incoming deliveries in the Test match against England.
“There is no doubt that Mohammed Siraj has bowled amazingly well in whatever chances he has got, especially in the Lord’s Test. He will get better with experience but whether you talk about fitness, ability to bowl long spells or pace, he has all the ingredients. Since the time he has started, if you see from Brisbane till now, he has given more than 100% in all matches.”
