Birmingham: Indian cricket team’s fast bowler Mohammad Siraj has started his county career with a bang. Playing for Warwickshire County, Siraj achieved this feat against Somerset. He bowled 24 overs against Somerset in the Division One match and took 5 wickets for 82 runs.
Siraj shocked by giving 42 runs
Due to Siraj’s lethal bowling, Somerset’s team was reduced to 219 runs in their first innings. During this, Siraj completed the paw of the wickets by hunting Pakistan openers Imam Ulhaq, George Bartlett, James Rave, Lewis Gregory and Josh Davy. Indian spinner Jayant Yadav, playing his first match for Warwickshire, took one wicket for 42 runs in 14 overs.
Siraj also took a wicket in the second innings.
Warwickshire’s team, who came out to bat after bundling Somerset for 219 runs, was also in dire straits. The entire team was bundled out for 196 runs in 81.2 overs. James Brooks took the maximum 4 wickets during this period. Going to bat again with a lead of 23 runs, Somerset’s team had a poor start again. Two Somerset players have returned to the pavilion for 12 runs. One success has gone to Siraj and one to Jayant Yadav.
Had a great performance in the test series against England
Mohammad Siraj bowled brilliantly for India in the five-match Test series in England last year. Siraj was also instrumental in India’s 2-1 lead in the first four matches of the series. The last Test of this series was played this year in which England won and leveled the series 2-2.
