Vivo IPL 2021: Mohammad Siraj is more skilful than Jasprit Bumrah, says Ashish Nehra.

Vivo IPL 2021: Former Indian pacer Ashish Nehra hailed the young speedster Mohammad Siraj who is performing brilliantly in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. Nehra reckons that Siraj is more skilful than Mumbai Indians Jasprit Bumrah.

In the recent video posted by Cricbuzz, Ashish Nehra said that the pacer is already having a lot of variations and if he keeps his fitness up to the mark and sharpens his cricketing brain then sky is the limit for him.

“There was talk about a couple of years ago that he used to pick up 5-6 wickets in every match for India A with the red ball… (now he) is a very good all-format bowler. There is no shortage of skill, he has all type of variations. I would in fact say that skill-wise, he is even ahead of Bumrah if you talk of variations,” Nehra said in a video on Cricbuzz.

“He has a different slower one, there is no lack of speed, he can move the new ball. He needs to keep his fitness and sharpen his mind. If he can do these two things well, the sky is the limit,” Nehra added.

Mohammad Siraj is proving to be a valuable asset for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the ongoing IPL. Sharing the new ball with Kiwi pacer Kyle Jamieson, he registered 50 dot balls in the IPL 2021 in just four games.

In the four games he played he has scalped five crucial wickets with an economy of 6.06.

Siraj made his Indian test debut against Australia last year. He was the lead bowler for India in the absence of senior pacers like Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Ishant Sharma.

Bowling against the mighty Aussies, India retained the Border Gavaskar Trophy as they defeated Australia 2-1 in the four games series.
