In a video posted on the Youtube channel, Sachin Tendulkar was heard saying, “When Mohammed Siraj was bowling, I had a couple of guys say that the ball hit the crack and it nipped back something which I observed was completely different. Mohammed Siraj, when he was bowling outswingers, (reflecting on the shiny surface of the ball) this is the shiny side and what he would do is he would get his fingers behind the ball and release it.”

Sachin further added, “So the seam is pointing towards first slip, or sometimes second slip, and when he wanted to bowl in cutter which moves off the seam, instead of going behind the ball he went off the pitch. The former cricketer concluded by giving Siraj the full marks for his bowling. So I don’t think it happened off the crack. It was Siraj’s talent. His ability to bowl those in-cutters.”
