India’s fast bowler Mohammed Siraj has long been working his socks off in the training session to get his line and lengths right. He did pick up lessons on the go and improved quite a lot in terms of his bowling approach.
The 28-year-old Hyderabad-born cricketer has represented the Indian cricket team in 15 Tests, 21 ODIs and 8 T20Is in his journey. He took 46 wickets in Tests, 38 wickets in ODIs and 11 wickets in T20Is.
The right-arm paceman is slowly turning out to be a regular feature for India across all three formats of the game. He has been in scintillating form for the last few years in international cricket.
Mohammed Siraj becomes the No.1 ranked ODI bowler in the world
Meanwhile, in the latest development, Mohammed Siraj gained points and became the No.1 ranked ODI bowler in the world, which is well and truly a great achievement.
Although he had the skill and prowess in his repertoire, nobody really expected him to claim the numero uno spot in the ICC Men’s ODI bowler rankings. Siraj claimed the top spot in the wake of stellar bowling performances against the Sri Lankan cricket team and the New Zealand cricket team respectively.
Siraj played the first two ODIs against New Zealand before he was finally rested for the dead rubber. The right-arm paceman has been a standout bowler for Team India in One-Day Internationals.
During the ODI series against Sri Lanka, he drew plaudits for his subtle bowling variations of good line and length as he took back-to-back 4-wicket hauls. Even in the first ODI against New Zealand in Hyderabad, Mohammed Siraj bagged a four-wicket haul.
During the second ODI against New Zealand, he took one wicket to his name. Overall, he finished the series with five wickets in two games. Team India won the ODI series by 3-0 against the Black Caps.
Never expected him rise to this level. Credit goes to Virat and RCB management.

Kohli should be given credit for backing Siraj even when his performances weren’t up to the mark…Advertisement
