Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) pacer Mohammed Siraj endured a poor campaign in the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). His poor run continued in the Qualifier 2 against Rajasthan Royals (RR) as RCB bowed out of the tournament.

Siraj bowled just two overs and gave away 31 runs without picking up a wicket. In a game where RCB desperately needed early breakthroughs, the 28-year-old once again failed to deliver.

Some angry fans took to social media to unleash their frustration. Mohammed Siraj was slammed by a number of fans, especially those supporting RCB. A few individuals even stooped low enough to comment on his father’s death.

However, many fans came in support of the underwire fast bowler.  They backed Siraj to script a turnaround in the upcoming months as India embark on a busy schedule next month.

Here are some reactions:

Incidentally, Mohammed Siraj has been a selfless servant of the game, so much so that he chose to represent his nation even though it stopped him from attending his father’s last rites. Besides, he has been exceptional in the Tests he has featured in.


Mohammed Siraj returns with nine wickets in IPL 2022

The Hyderabad-born cricketer was one of the three retained cricketers, including Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell for the Royal Challengers. The franchise spent a whopping amount of INR 7 crore to retain Siraj.

If one looks at the numbers, Mohammed Siraj has been one of the most improved bowlers for RCB over the past few seasons and one of their best bowlers.

However, he had a poor campaign in IPL 2022, returning with nine wickets in 15 matches at an economy of 10.08 runs per over and an average of 57.11.
