“It was a dream delivery”: Mohammed Shiraj
CRICDOT DESK : New Zealand’s batting group collapsed like a card game, and it was pacemaker Mohammed Shiraj who made a great start to the team. The right arm illuminated Wankede Stadium by winning the first three wickets and reducing tourists by 17/3 with a 5.1 over.
The Indian bowling unit gave a dominant show on the second day of the second test in progress against New Zealand in Mumbai, following the perfect 10fer of Ajaz Patel. In response to 325 hosts, only 62 visitors gathered. This is the lowest score for India in test cricket.
The bowler bowled very well in a short but effective four-over phase, sending up to three black-cap batters back to the stadium. Of the three scalps Siraj took, Ross Taylor’s secretions were the most eye-catching.
In New Zealand’s first inning, six overs, everything happened when Syrage bowled a long ball to keep Taylor away, let Taylor play on his forefoot, and walk the stump.
After the end of the second day, Syrage shared his thoughts on the game plan and described Taylor’s release as “a dream delivery for every fast bowler.”
“I was planning to hit the pad in preparation for the inswing in the field, but why not throw an outsin while making the rhythm? It was a dream delivery for a fast bowler.” Shiraji said in a post-match press. The Hyderabad pacemaker, who missed the start of the series at Kanpur, revealed that he was preparing hard on the net and was always hitting the ball in one area to find the rhythm.
“When I got injured and started training again, I did a lot of single wicket bowling to get as much momentum as possible. That was my focus. When I got a friendly and chance, I was consistently one You have to hit the area, which helps build my rhythm, “Siraj added.
