Mohammed Siraj, who was on the trigger of troller since his last year’s poor performance, had shut all the critics and troller with his exceptional bowling performance against Kolkata Knight Riders. The social media was full of praise for his stunning bowling which sealed the deal for Royal challengers Bangalore.
RCB captain Virat Kohli handed Siraj to bowl the second over of the match and he bowled a dream-like spell. He picked two consecutive wickets while gave away a run before picking the third wicket. The pacer also created history and became the first bowler in IPL history to bowl back-to-back two maiden overs. With his amazing bowling, RCB managed to restrict KKR to paltry 84 runs.
But this was not the story for Mohammed Siraj in the last edition. He was the most expensive bowler for RCB while has only picked up seven wickets in nine matches. The fans were harsh on him and trolled him badly. However, in the ongoing edition, the carpers have become his praisers.
MS Dhoni’s precious advise to Mohammed Siraj
Mohammed Siraj has opened up that he has learned to not get bothered with outer voices. He stated that the advice from former Indian captain MS Dhoni always stuck with him and helped him to ignore other’s unhealthy opinions.
“Mahi Bhai (MS Dhoni) always says to not take the opinion of others seriously. If you have one bad game they will tell you, you are not good enough. If you keep thinking about those you will go mad. Rather you think that the next match if you do well, the same set of people will start praising you and call you a good bowler,” said Siraj in a video shared by RCB on their official Twitter handle.
After the victory against KKR, RCB have climbed up to the top three in the IPL 2020 points table. They are very close to their IPL dream.
