By clean sweeping New Zealand in a spectacular way on Indian soil, India has not only secured the number-1 position in the ICC ODI rankings, but with this, the Indian bowler has occupied the top position in the ICC bowler rankings. Indian fast bowler Mohammed Siraj has overtaken New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult in the MRF Tires ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings for bowlers.

Since his return to the ODI camp, Siraj has been the best among Indian fast bowlers with 37 wickets in 20 matches. The underrated performance of the 28-year-old in Bumrah’s absence deserves praise.

the captain patted him on the back

Indian captain Rohit Sharma praised Siraj when asked about the fast bowler emerging after the whitewash in the series against New Zealand. “He has done really well. Siraj understands what the team expects from him. Getting early wickets by swinging the ball quickly with the new ball and now having great skills in the middle overs also gives him an edge. The more Siraj plays, the more he plays. Doing well.
