Royal Challengers Bangalore seamer Mohammad Siraj opened up about his performance in the IPL 2022. He believes that he has not been up to the mark in the tournament. He feels that he has not been able to stand up to his team’s expectations thus far.

Siraj has not been able to pick many wickets in this season of the cash-rich event. He feels that he needs to work on his game and focus on scalping wickets in the powerplay in order to provide his team with rhythm in the game.

“I haven’t performed the way I wanted to. What the team wants from Siraj, I haven’t been able to do that so far. I am focusing my preparation on my role which is to get wickets in the powerplay and set the tone for the team. That’s my plan,” he said while speaking to Star Sports before the clash against Chennai Super Kings on Wednesday.

I’ll try my best to bowl at one spot in the powerplay: Mohammed Siraj

He admitted that he hasn’t been able to demonstrate the uniformity required to accomplish his role in the team, but said that he will do so in the powerplay overs by bowling in the appropriate areas. Siraj has scalped just eight wickets in 10 games so far, and aims to do well in the forthcoming encounters. As compared to the previous IPL season, Siraj’s average and economy have declined, and RCB’s bowling in the powerplay has been a talking point.

“My role is to deliver in the powerplay and at the death. I think my consistency hasn’t been up to the mark. I’ll try my best to bowl at one spot in the powerplay. Even if I get hit for runs with the batter hitting a good shot then also it’s not a big deal because he’s here to play as well. But I will try and bowl consistently on spot,” he added.
