New Delhi: In the first Test against England, India’s fast bowlers Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Siraj all performed well. Jasprit Bumrah took 9 wickets in the match, while Mohammed Shami and Siraj also appeared in excellent rhythm. Jasprit Bumrah stunned the English batsmen. Other fast bowlers like Mohammed Shami and Mohammad Siraj also performed well. The Indian fast bowling line-up looked very dangerous, which is being praised by legends around the world.
In danger in place of Ishant Sharma
Veteran pacer Ishant Sharma’s place in the Test team is in danger as Mohammad Siraj has won the hearts of captain Virat Kohli with his lethal bowling. In the first Test against England, Mohammad Siraj intimidated the English batsmen with both the ball and the tongue, cementing his place in the playing XI. In such a situation, Ishant Sharma is sure to sit out of Team India’s playing XI.
Ishant Sharma may be dropped from Test team
Captain Virat Kohli dropped veteran pacer Ishant Sharma from the playing XI in the first Test against England in Nottingham and picked up young pacer Mohammad Siraj in his place. Mohammad Siraj justified this decision of captain Kohli and impressed everyone with his performance in the Nottingham Test. Siraj took 3 wickets in this match. In the first Test match, Kohli included Siraj in place of Ishant. It is now clear that Virat now likes Siraj.
Mohammad Siraj looks very dangerous
Mohammad Siraj intimidated the English batsmen with his pace and line length in the Nottingham Test. Mohammad Siraj may have been successful in taking 3 wickets to say, but he looked quite dangerous during his spell. With his accurate bowling, he also put the visiting team in a lot of trouble.
Siraj increased Ishant’s troubles
Mohammad Siraj worked to increase the problems for veteran fast bowler Ishant Sharma with his superb bowling. Since this performance of Siraj, he has now reserved his seat in the playing XI to a great extent for the next matches as well.
Kohli will not make the mistake of keeping Siraj out
There is no doubt that Ishant Sharma has played more than 100 Test matches and he is also rich in experience, but at present, captain Kohli and team management cannot make the mistake of keeping Siraj out of the playing XI.
Wrecked havoc on Australia tour
This year when India defeated Australia 2-1 to win the historic Border-Gavaskar Trophy, Mohammad Siraj had a major contribution in it. Mohammed Siraj, showing a strong game in the debut test series, took a total of 13 wickets in just three test matches at an average of 29.54. He was also the highest wicket-taker for India in this series.
