Mohammed siraj’s spectacular performance boosts confidence ahead of T20 world cup.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru’s star pace bowler, Mohammed Siraj, showcased a dazzling display of skill in Saturday’s Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Gujarat Titans, dispelling any doubts about his form leading up to the T20 World Cup in June.

Despite facing challenges with form and rhythm during the ongoing IPL season, the 30-year-old, who secured a spot in India’s 15-member squad for the T20 World Cup, demonstrated his prowess with the new ball against Gujarat. Siraj’s remarkable spell saw him dismissing opener Wriddhiman Saha and rival captain Shubman Gill in successive overs, contributing significantly to Gujarat’s total of 147 runs.

Bengaluru clinched victory by four wickets with 38 balls to spare, securing their fourth win in 11 matches and elevating them to the seventh position in the points table.

Reflecting on his performance, Siraj expressed satisfaction with his performance with the new ball, emphasizing that it aligns with his strengths. He reminisced about his stellar performances with the new ball last year and found solace in the reminiscent success.

Acknowledging the challenges of transitioning from red-ball to white-ball cricket, Siraj credited persistent practice for regaining his rhythm and form. His brief rest from the home game against Sunrisers last month allowed him the opportunity to recalibrate and focus on his game.

Bengaluru’s assistant coach, Adam Griffith, lauded Siraj’s resurgence, highlighting his significance as a rhythm bowler and a key leader within the team. Griffith emphasized Siraj’s pivotal role in the team’s strategies and praised his renewed aggression and pace on the field.

Siraj’s exceptional performance in the IPL serves as a testament to his resilience and skill, instilling confidence not only within the Bengaluru camp but also among fans and selectors as India gears up for the T20 World Cup.
