Mohammed Siraj confident about strong comeback in England after dismal IPL 2022 campaign

Written by Sumit Seth

Mohammed Siraj is confident of making a strong comeback during India’s tour of England after having a nightmare of IPL 2022 for Royal Challengers Bangalore. Siraj finished the IPL 2022 season with 9 wickets in 15 matches at an economy rate of 10.08 – which is in stark contrast to the 6.78 economy rate from 2021 that led to RCB retaining him. Siraj owned an unwanted record during the recently-concluded season as he became the first bowler in the history of the IPL to concede 30 sixes in a season.

“This season the IPL was a bit down. The last two seasons my graph was up and this time it has come down. But then I see what I have done in the past two years and take that along,” Siraj told PTI during the trailer launch of the web series ‘Bandon Mein Tha Dum’ to be streamed on ‘Voot Select’, based on India’s 2020-21 Test series triumph in Australia.

Siraj, who has been brilliant in Test matches for India, wants to do well in the fifth Test against England to be played in Edgbaston from July 1-5.

“My preparations are going well for the Test. There in England, the Dukes ball is used, it is always good to bowl there in the English conditions and it is helpful for the bowlers,” the Hyderabad-based speedster added.
