“He is my pick for Australia” – Fans praise Mohammed Siraj for another impressive performance in 2nd ODI


Mohammed Siraj continue his revival in white ball cricket for Team India with another stellar performance, this time against South Africa in the second ODI at Ranchi on Sunday. The speedster raked in 3/38 from his ten passes and was one of the main reasons the hosts were able to limit South Africa 278/7.

At one stage, with Reeza Hendricks and Aiden Markram doing so well, it looks like Proteas will easily pass the 300-run mark. But as he did in the third T20I and the first ODI, Mohammed Siraj cast another dramatic spell at the moment of his death to ensure that the Men in Blue weren’t chasing mammoth targets.

Fans on Twitter are really buzzing about how well Siraj has been doing lately. With all the debate about whether Mohammed Shami will replace Jasearch Bumrah in India T20 World Cup Many feel that Siraj should come to Australia as part of the main squad.

Here are some reactions:

Siraj is about to receive the ICC ODI Cricketer of the year award twitter.com/CricCrazyJohns…

And again Siraj bowed from his heart. Initially, he mainly bowled with Maharaj in the low court but he has shown that he can perform his variations in the death of..#INDvSA

Really good stuff from Siraj today, showing good signs again. Happy for him.

Mohammad Siraj Bowled 11 times voiceovers in ODIs in 2022 – Most by any bowler in the world in this format. https://t.co/7GEWyu8IyD

It’s funny how Siraj misses the stump trying to run away from Miller and then grabs a dead ball! 😅Another note – I wouldn’t bother about the fitness tests at the NCA. he is my pick for Australia.

Street says Siraj did well again. I called him back these days even though his economy didn’t show any signs like this 👍🏻

As high quality bowling, especially at death, from Siraj. Another good performance in the last ODI and he thinks he will start against Pakistan.

Came back to see Mohammed Siraj having a day 🔥 #INDvSA

SA hits 200 in 36.2 passes and 7 weeks left. Great comeback from the bowlers to keep them 278/7. Only 57 runs in the last 10 laps. Outstanding Siraj. #INDvSA

Siraj seriously pushes Shami for that Bumrah position in the team.👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

In terms of Siraj’s skills, his windfall is a huge balloon, but his temperament is what makes him frustrated at times.


Mohammed Siraj’s catch changed the game in South Africa

India’s bowlers got off to a good start, helping them regain both openers early in the game. This is where Reeza Hendricks and Aiden Markram meet. First, the duo stabilized the Protea ship and then started taking advantage of sideballs.

The duo added 129 runs for the third bracket and look set to take it up a notch. However, Mohammed Siraj was back on the attack and provided the much-needed breakthrough for Hendricks. The ball holder also had a good catch long ago to get rid of Heinrich Klaasen and that really put South Africa on hold.

The away team had David Miller at home, but he found it difficult to connect, thanks to some of the last home team’s bowling discipline. Will Team India manage to chase 279 and survive the series? Only time will answer.
