Former Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria hailed Indian pacers Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj for their new-ball spell against New Zealand in the second ODI in Raipur on Saturday.
Shami and Siraj were lethal with the new ball and were instrumental in sending back half of the New Zealand side with just 15 runs on the board. Siraj, in particular, has shown incredible consistency for the Men in Blue in ODI cricket over the past 12 months.
In a video on his YouTube channel, here’s what Danish Kaneria had to say about Mohammed Siraj and the other Indian pacers’ performance:
Danish Kaneria also slammed the Kiwis for not adjusting well to the seaming conditions as they often face such conditions in their own backyard. He feels they should have shown better application against the hosts.
On this, Kaneria stated:
The former cricketer also credited Mohammed Shami for producing a fantastic performance, with figures of 3/18 from his six overs and breaking the back of New Zealand’s batting. On this, he added:
Team India may look to rotate their squad for the third ODI, with the likes of Shami and Siraj crucial for next month’s Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
