India had made a blistering performance in Boling, despite the injury to veteran players in Australia. India had shocked Australia on the basis of players like Mohammed Siraj, Shardul Thakur, Washington Sundar, Navdeep Saini and T. Natarajan and less experienced players. Mohammed Siraj had a tremendous performance on this tour.
He told in an interview to TimesofIndia.com how Siraj, along with Shardul, had prepared a plan to defeat the Kangaroos. He said, ‘Shardul and I sat in Brisbane for some time and planned how to create pressure. Of course, a team is under pressure when it loses its big players. We lost some big players due to injuries. But our supporting staff is qualified and ready to do anything. ‘
What did Siraj say after taking 5 wickets against Australia?
The Indian fast bowler said, “The bowling plan was to create pressure from both ends.” A batsman will surely make a mistake when you create pressure. So did happen. We put pressure and the Australian team gave away their wickets.
