He praised fast bowler Mohammad Siraj in this. Rohit told that Siraj has made a lot of changes in bowling in the last 2 years. Siraj has now become a deadly weapon for the Indian team.
Captain Rohit praised Siraj and said, “We have seen how Siraj has performed in all three formats for the team in the last two years and he is a very important player for us.” That’s why how are you managing them, how are you keeping them fresh. In these two years, he has made a lot of improvement in bowling, especially in line and length. What we are seeing recently is his out swing. Earlier he was not known so much for his swing. But in the last series, he has consistently swung with the new ball. This is a very good thing for the team.
Significantly, Siraj bowled dangerously against Sri Lanka. He took 2 wickets for 30 runs in the first ODI played in Guwahati. After this, in the second ODI played in Kolkata, he took 3 wickets for 30 runs. He took 4 wickets for 32 runs in the last match. This match was played in Thiruvananthapuram. Rohit told that Siraj will now play in Hyderabad ODI against New Zealand.
