He has proved his mettle with the bowl in his hand. Former Indian bowler Parthiv Patel was left extremely impressed with Siraj’s newly-found form.
IPL 2021: Parthiv Patel Hails Mohammed Siraj
Parthiv Patel believes that Siraj has been the best found of the VIVO IPL 2021. Patel also spoke about his toe-breaking yorkers this season.
“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.
Mohammad Siraj has become such an excellent death bowler, consistently clocking high pace Yorkers.

Mohammed Siraj, recently, gave insights about his outstanding run in the game. He agreed that he is high on confidence and that the Test match has helped his line and length.
“Obviously, my confidence is really high. Playing Test matches has helped my line and length. When I bowl with the new ball now, I try to bowl the Test-match line and length and that is giving me confidence. I always had that skill but got more experience by playing for India. Got to learn a lot from Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah after sharing the dressing room with them, and that helped my confidence,” Siraj had explained.
