Team India fast bowler Mohammed Siraj has taken giant strides ever since he made his international debut last year. As he continues to impress, Team India skipper Virat Kohli has showered praise on the young fast bowler from Hyderabad on the eve of the third Test against England at Headingley.

So far, Siraj has scalped 11 wickets and is the joint highest wicket-taker after Jasprit Bumrah among Indians. Mohammed Siraj bowled an incredible match-winning spell at Lord’s on day 5 to guide India to a thrilling victory.

Addressing a pre-match virtual press conference, Virat Kohli said that the 2020-21 series against Australia Down Under helped Siraj gain the confidence of performing well against other top teams.

“I was not surprised at all (with his growth) because I have seen him from close quarters. He is a guy who has always had the skill. You need the confidence to back that skill, the Australia series provided him with that boost and confidence,” Kohli said.

“He is walking around knowing he can get anyone out at any stage and the belief in his game has been elevated to another level, hence you see results of what he is doing,” the skipper added.

Mohammed Siraj’s confidence makes him flamboyant: Virat Kohli

Mohammed Siraj brings a raw energy to the pace attack and he ability to swing the ball has brought a much-needed balance to the Indian pace attack. Adding further, Virat Kohli stated that the pacer’s confidence makes him flamboyant.

“I am really happy to see him coming into his own, he is going to be this kind of bowler, who is in your face and who is looking to get guys out and who is not scared, he is not going to take a backward step,” Kohli said.
