Mohammed Siraj Is The Story Of IPL 2021

While speaking to Star Sports, former Indian wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel lauded Mohammed Siraj for his bowling in IPL 2021.

“Absolutely they did (on RCB’s managed to resolve death over bowling issues). I thought the way Mohammed Siraj bowled this season. I think he is the story of this IPL. Everyone has spoken about Mohammed Siraj bowling well with the new ball and then not being able to bowl yorkers but this season he was nailing yorkers,” said Patel.

Parthiv, who is also an active commentator, also praised RCB’s pacer Harshal Patel for his bowling in IPL 2021.

“The emergence of Harshal Patel. He was a smart buy and he got help from the pitches as well. The elite slower ones and the yorkers also mixing in between. I thought he mixed his pace very well. He bowled well in Mumbai also, when you are playing so many games, you can get hit, that’s fine, but that wicket-taking ability is very important when you are bowling in the slog overs”, said Patel.
