We see many records being broken in cricket. However, there are also some unwanted records, which are forever recorded in the player’s name. A similar somewhat undesirable record has been recorded in the name of Royal Challengers Bangalore fast bowler Mohammad Siraj. Perhaps Siraj will not want to remember this unwanted performance even in his dreams. Let’s find out exactly what Siraj has done…
Mohammed Siraj drew attention in this match played in Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians team. The reason behind this was the 19th over he bowled. What Siraj did in this over, he did something unprecedented in IPL history. However, this turned out to be an undesirable performance event.
An underwhelming performance by Siraj
Mohammad Siraj of Bangalore bowled the 19th over of Mumbai Indians’ innings. Arshad Khan was on strike this time. Siraj’s first ball was bowled by Arshad. Siraj then bowled the third ball to Tilak Varma but it was wide. Along with this, he bowled four wides one after the other. Then Tilak took 2 runs. Here Siraj bowled 7 times like first two balls + four wides + third ball. After that, when he bowled the fourth ball, Tilak hit it for a boundary. Again he bowled the fifth ball wide. After this, when he bowled again on the fifth ball, Tilak again hit a boundary. Finally he bowled the sixth ball luckily. Thus he bowled 11 balls instead of 6 in an over, with one more wide after the first four wides. In this over he gave 5 more runs of wides. So Mumbai got a total of 16 runs in this over. However, despite all this, captain Faf Du Plessis handled the situation sensibly.
That’s a SCREAMER!
