Mohammed Siraj abuses Lomror after missed run out chance against Rajasthan Royals. In Bangalore, Mohammed Siraj gave away 39 runs and took one wicket during his bowling spell against the Rajasthan Royals.
At the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru during the IPL 2023 match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals, Mohammed Siraj was seen hurling verbal abuses at his colleague Mahipal Lomror for failing to make a runout. As the away team approached their target, the atmosphere became increasingly tense.
During the last delivery of the game, Dhruv Jurel attempted to take a second run, which caught Lomror off guard. However, Lomror quickly retrieved the ball when he saw that Rajasthan was trying to score a double. Although he threw the ball awkwardly, Siraj was unable to collect it and unfortunately broke the stumps with his leg.
Expressing his disgust at Lomror’s throw, the ace pacer resorted to abusing his own teammate and criticized him. Despite this, the young player remained unfazed and returned to his fielding position for the 20th over.
RCB beat RR by Seven runs.
The home team batted first and dominated the game with exceptional performances from Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell. Faf scored an impressive 62 runs off 39 deliveries while Glenn hit 77 runs off just 44 deliveries. As a result of their outstanding batting, RCB managed to post a total of 189 runs in the first 20 overs.
Mohammed Siraj got off to a good start with the ball, taking a wicket with the new ball and sending Jos Buttler back to the pavilion in the first over. This put pressure on Rajasthan from the beginning of their second innings. Nevertheless, Yashasvi Jaiswal (47) and Devdutt Padikkal (52), both young players, remained composed and brought the visiting team back into the game.
The team led by Sanju Samson lost momentum and faced difficulty after the dismissal of their top batsmen. Despite Dhurv Jurel’s impressive batting in the final overs, Rajasthan Royals lost the match by seven runs. On the other hand, Royal Challengers Bangalore secured another victory and climbed up to the fifth position on the IPL Points Table.
