After a disappointing IPL 2022 season, star pacer Mohammed Siraj hopes for a successful comeback. Siraj hopes to rebound strongly in the fifth Test against England.
Mohammed Siraj had a nightmare of playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, but one of India’s rising fast bowling stars is hoping to make amends with the red Dukes during the series-deciding fifth Test against England. Siraj had an economy rate of 10.07 with only nine wickets from 15 games in the recently concluded IPL, but the bigger shame was being hit for a whopping 31 sixes, the most by any bowler in the tournament’s history.
“The IPL had a rough season this year. My graph had been rising for the previous two seasons, but it has now fallen. But then I look back over the last two years and remember what I’ve accomplished “On Wednesday, Siraj told PTI. “This year has been difficult for me, but I am determined to make a strong comeback by working hard. I will improve my skills and believe in my abilities.”

Siraj wants to perform well in the fifth Test against England, which will be held in Edgbaston from July 1-5.
“My Test preparations are going well. The Dukes ball is used in England; it is always good to bowl there in English conditions, and it is beneficial to the bowlers “The Hyderabad-based racer continued.
The fifth Test, which had to be rescheduled due to a COVID outbreak in the Indian camp last year, will be “very important” in the context of the World Test Championship, according to Siraj.
“This Test is critical for us, and we are up 2-1. It’s good that the Test has been rescheduled, and we’re confident (of doing well) because we’re in the lead; it’s a good feeling “The right-arm speedster was added.
Siraj believes that hitting one spot consistently is crucial in Test cricket. “In a Test match, your line and length, as well as your ability to bowl consistently at one spot, are crucial. That is what I have learned, and it is the same thing I learned in Australia, and my goal is to consistently perform for the team and bowl in one area to create pressure. Even if I don’t get wickets, my goal is to put the opposition under pressure “Siraj stated.
