Mohammed Siraj has endured a torrid past month in IPL 2024 as he has been took to the cleaners by the batsmen and was at one stage dropped from the starting lineup of Royal Challegers Bengaluru. 

But back in the starting lineup, Mohammed Siraj starred in Royal Challengers Bengaluru's must win game against the Gujarat Titans in match 52 of IPL 2024. RCB won the contest by four wickets in the end but the victory was set up by none other than Mohammed Siraj's heroic spell. 


Mohammed Siraj opened the bowling for RCB and fired up in the first innings as he knocked over both Shubman Gill and Wriddhiman Saha to set the tone for RCB's victory. Having been pummeled all over the park in the tournament, Siraj finished his spell last night with 2/29 in four overs. His spell earned him the man of the match award and after his heroics, Siraj revealed a surprising health update.
