Indian pacer Mohammed Siraj was impressive in the second innings of the ongoing Test match versus England. He took 4 wickets at Lord’s. Siraj has a habit of taking on his opponents and was seen glaring at English batsmen. The right-handed pacer was even seen shushing them after dismissing the batsmen.
Former Indian cricketer, Deep Dasgupta has stated that Mohammed Siraj is a bowling avatar of Rishabh Pant and wants the team management to be patient with the fast bowler.
“Mohammed Siraj was standout. The thing I like about Siraj is that he, according to me, is the bowling avatar of Rishabh Pant. He has an attacking mindset like Pant. There will be days or spells where he might leak runs. But as I say for Rishabh Pant that you need to be patient with him, same applies to Mohammed Siraj,” said Dasgupta on YouTube.
He further added that a cricketer like Siraj needs to be encouraged.
“Even if he gives away runs, there is a need to be patient because his attacking mindset is his speciality. There might be days or spells where he would frustrate you but you will need to stay patient and encourage him,” concluded Dasgupta.
