Most bowlers are fireballs of energy after stepping onto the cricket field but their over-eagerness can also affect the team in a negative manner. Such was the case when the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) pacer, Mohammed Siraj convinced his skipper to take a review after the umpire ruled the batter to be not out, causing a DRS wastage.

Mohammed Siraj asks for unwanted DRS

After being eliminated from the race to playoffs, Sunrisers Hyderabad had a dismal start in the game against Royal Challengers Bangalore as well. They scored 33/2 by the end of five overs as Michael Bracewell got a couple of crucial wickets for RCB. The visitors were able to restrict the batters in the powerplay but the only negative from the first 30 deliveries was the wastage of a review from them and it garnered a lot of attention.

Mohammed Siraj was bowling the third over of the innings and he pitched the second delivery of the over outside off to Abhishek Sharma angling away from the batter. After collecting the ball behind the stumps, Anuj Rawat was convinced that the batter had nicked the ball.

Apart from him, Siraj was also confident that Abhishek has made contact with the ball and it is a dismissal. As a result of being confident about his judgment, Siraj insisted that the review should be taken to overturn the decision.
