“Let him go…”Former Cricket Star’s Take on Mohammed Siraj’s IPL Form

It has been a dreadful start to the IPL for RCB’s premium pace bowler, Mohammad Siraj. The Indian star has been completely off-color with the ball. He has just picked up four wickets from six matches. 

In RCB’s clash against the Mumbai Indians, he was once again taken to the cleaners and ended up scoring 37 runs in his three overs. Former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh was not at all impressed with Siraj’s performance in this year’s IPL.

The former spinner feels that Siraj needs to be rested and think about what is not working for him this season.

In his interaction with Star Sports, Harbhajan Singh said, “If I were part of the management, I would give him rest for a couple of games. Let him go back and think about what’s been happening to him. He has been the same Siraj whom we have seen taking wickets with the new ball, whether it’s Test cricket, one-day cricket, or even in this format. He has been a champion bowler for Team India and even for RCB. I feel he is not doing what he is required to do.”

Harbhajan Singh believes that Siraj looks a bit tired, and resting in a couple of matches can help him get back in form.

Harbhajan Singh said, “I think he is too tired. He is not there mentally or physically. He needs to take a rest. He has been playing a lot of cricket. He played four Tests against England. He bowls a lot of overs. He looks very tired, both physically and mentally. With this kind of hammering (vs. MI), it’s hard for any bowler to wake up the next day and feel alright. I have gone through these kinds of situations. You have to give yourself a bit of time, think about your game, and relax a bit. I am sure Siraj will come back strong.”
