In the absence of Indian team’s experienced fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023, young fast bowler Mohammad Siraj is taking command of the team. Let us tell you that Mohammed Siraj has improved a lot in his bowling since his debut.

Siraj also performed amazingly in ODIs this year, after which he seems to be getting a place in the ODI World Cup 2023, but Siraj also had to face many challenges to reach here. In this episode, Team India’s wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik has shared an anecdote about Mohammad Siraj’s T20I debut match.

Dinesh Karthik told the unheard story of Mohammed Siraj’s T20I debut –

In fact, Team India’s wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik made a statement remembering the last match of the T20I series played between India and New Zealand in Rajkot in 2017. Regarding the debut match of young fast bowler Mohammad Siraj’s T20I career, he told that Siraj was very scared before this match.

With this, Karthik said, “He could not even sleep. I think he was not ready when he was selected for T20I. He was a fast bowler but was considered a bit unstable and was selected in the T20I squad. He played a match against New Zealand in Rajkot and earlier that day I told him that there is a batsman named Colin Munro, he is going to kill you. Just wait and see, I have a feeling he’s going to belt you.” 

After this Siraj told me, “No no brother, I will get him out, but what happened, Munro scored an unbeaten century in that match.” Siraj still tells me that you had a black tongue, which ended my career before it even started.”

Dinesh Karthik predicted about Mohammed Siraj –

Apart from this, Dinesh Karthik made a prediction about Mohammed Siraj and said that he will definitely become the bowler who takes 300 wickets in Test cricket. Let us tell you that the first bowler to do this feat for India was Kapil Dev.

Kapil Dev took 434 wickets while playing a total of 131 matches. After this, the second bowler to achieve this feat was Zaheer Khan, who took 311 wickets in 92 Tests. Apart from Zaheer and Kapil, Ishant Sharma has also crossed the 300 mark. Ishant has played 105 Tests so far and has taken 311 wickets.
