Delivery to dismiss Ross Taylor was dream ball for any bowler: Mohammed Siraj

MUMBAI: India pacer Mohammed Siraj termed the delivery that got Ross Taylor out a “dream” for any bowler because of its perfect execution. Siraj played a key role in New Zealand getting bowled out for 62 in their first innings as he got three top order wickets in quick succession in his opening spell on the second day of the second Test.
Asked about the delivery to Taylor, Siraj said, “The plan was that we had set field for an inswing delivery and was aim to hit the pads but the way I was building my rhythm, I thought why not bowl an outswing. It was a dream delivery for any fast bowler.”
Siraj had split his webbing during the first T20 International against New Zealand in Jaipur and was out of action since then. He was overlooked with senior pacer Ishant Sharma getting a chance in the opening Test in Kanpur.
“When I resumed training after getting injured, I did a lot of single wicket bowling with an aim to get as much swing as possible. That was my focus. As and when I would get chance in Test match, I had to consistently hit one area and that’s what helps me in building my rhythm,” the Hyderabad fast bowler, who bowled a 147 kmph plus bouncer to dismiss Tom Latham, said.
