Mohammed Siraj secured the top position in the ICC ODI rankings for bowlers

Indian fast bowler Mohammed Siraj ranked at the top position for the ICC ODI rankings for bowlers due to his best performance in 2022 and keeping the same spirit at the start of 2023. In the recent series against Sri Lanka, he got 9 wickets to haul, including 4 wickets in the second match.

Siraj has become the first consecutive Indian bowler to secure the number-one position after Jasprit Bumrah. Bumrah was the holder of this position in 2022. Mohammed Siraj took 37 wickets from 21 fixtures, especially his attacking wicket-tacking bowling in the power play of the game is remarkable. 

He was also included as a player in the ICC ODI Team of the Year earlier this week. Rohit Sharma’s remarks about Siraj are quoted as, “He has done really well, he understands what the team is expecting from him. To come and take the new ball, swing the ball, get early wickets. In the middle overs, too, he’s got so much skill. The more he plays, the better he gets.”
