India captain Rohit Sharma applauded Mohammed Siraj and said that the pace bowler understands what the team is expecting from him in every game. Siraj has become India’s main bowler in the absence of the pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah as well and his performance in 2022 was rewarded with him being named in the ICC ODI Team Of The Year as well.

Speaking at the post-match press conference, Rohit applauded Siraj and said that the pacer got better in terms of understanding his bowling. “I have spoken a lot about him. The more cricket he has played, he has become better in terms of understanding his bowling. I think in this game, it is understanding about what you can do. What is your ability? The moment you understand that I think you can be more effective for the team and Siraj has exactly done that in the last couple of years he has played. Whichever format be it. He has done really well. He understands what the team is expecting from him. To come and take the new ball. To swing the ball, get early wickets. In the middle overs, again he has got so much skill. He can come and do all those kinds of skills. The more he plays, the better he gets,” said Rohit Sharma.
