“Bumrah told me not to try anything different. Bowl in one area and create pressure with dot balls and there should be equal focus on each ball,” the 26-year-old Hyderabad pacer said, having already got three wickets in the match. Siraj’s elevation as a Test bowler has happened in the wake of some great performances for Hyderabad and India A. “During lockdown, I had worked very hard on my fitness and that’s paying off well. I did well for India A in red ball format and that really helped and after my good performance with the white ball in this year’s IPL, I got confidence that I can do well for senior team also and hopefully, I will keep up the good work in future too,” he said. What helped Siraj perform impressively with the red kookaburra is his experience of playing for A team in New Zealand earlier this year.
