2nd ODI: Sri Lanka versus India: Mohammed Siraj asserts that KL Rahul’s suggestion to bowl hard lengths was successful

In 39.4 overs, Sri Lanka was bowled out for 215 because they had trouble batting. Siraj and Kuldeep each took three wickets.

India pace bowler Mohammed Siraj credited KL Rahul’s success against Sri Lanka with his precise reading of the Eden Gardens strip and conditions during the second one-day international on Thursday in Kolkata.

In 39.4 overs, Sri Lanka was bowled out for 215 because they had trouble batting. Siraj and Kuldeep each took three wickets.

Siraj asserts that Rahul realized that the ball had stopped doing its job after just the first over and that he would need to use a new strategy on Friday during the innings break against the experienced batting order. Siraj’s two wickets helped Sri Lanka lose the first day of the international at Guwahati by 67 runs.

“The ball did not emerge sufficiently quickly due to a lack of swing.” “The plan was to bowl stump-to-stump to keep the pressure on one end in the hopes of taking wickets and helping the other bowlers,” said Siraj, who scored 3/30 in 5.4 overs.

With the help of the strategy, Siraj was able to shake Sri Lankan Avishka Fernando, a 20-year-old woman. Additionally, he exerted sufficient pressure on the players, which resulted in Kuldeep Yadav making an important catch with wrist spin.

“After KL (Rahul) informed me that it stopped swinging after one round, I switched to hard lengths.” “Despite the fact that it is a good wicket for batting, Kuldeep bowled very well to cause a collapse of the middle order,” Siraj continued.

Siraj asserts that batters can succeed as long as they play the ball well due to the fast outfield.

The following statement was made by Siraj: Batters are being instructed to simply observe and play the ball because the outfield moves quickly.
