Former England cricketer Geoffrey Boycott mentioned that Mohammed Siraj‘s aggression should not be curbed and should be allowed to flourish to get the best out of him. India defeated England in the second Test at Lord’s after 7 years and it will be one of the most cherished victories for the Virat Kohli-led team.

From being at the jaws of defeat in the second innings, the Indian tailenders contributed with the bat and took India to a safe position on the final day with 60 overs left. England needed to chase down 271 and they faltered completely to be rolled up for just 120 in the end. Mohammed Siraj was one of the stars of the Test picking up his career-best match haul of 8 wickets.

Geoffrey Boycott Feels India Have A Beautiful Attack Now

Geoffrey Boycott opined that he likes Siraj for his energy and aggression and reckoned that no one should change his aggression. He added that Siraj might be an asset for India in the future and felt R Ashwin should be given a go. He also suggested India to go in with two top-class spinners and three pacers.

“I like Siraj. He is full of energy. No one should tell him to curb anything. Let him flourish in his own way. He’s an asset for India, although he is fairly new,”

“India have got a beautiful attack now. I would like to have Ravichandran Ashwin in the team. Two top-class spinners and three pacers should be my choice of attack,”

“I liked the way the Indian team rallied around each other. When Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah were batting [during their match-defining 89-run stand], the whole team was shouting from the balcony. They even came down to receive them. These things bring about solidarity,”
