The India squad is in England under the leadership of Virat Kohli and is preparing for a five-match Test series against the hosts. The series will start on August 4th. Before the start of the series, South African fast bowler Dale Steyn praised Mohammad Siraj. He said of this young pacer that his role in the conditions of England could prove very important. Steyn stressed that fast bowlers must be fit to play all five Tests in the upcoming series against England.

Since making his debut for White Ball in 2017, Siraj has had to wait a long time to play internationally. His wait ended in a Test series against Australia at the end of last year. Here he was impressed with his performance and was instrumental in defeating India against Australia on their ground. India won the four-match Test series 3-1. After this tour, Siraj has been a regular member of the Indian Test team.

Speaking to ESPN Cricinfo, Steyn said, ‘Siraj is such a bowler, he can bring you back to the game. I think he brings a good attitude to the game. When you play in English conditions, you often forget about it. It’s not just about keeping the ball in good condition, but also the attitude you bring during the game. This creates pressure on the batsmen and they are forced to play all the balls they don’t really want to play. Steyn admitted that it was Siraj’s attitude that made India successful in winning the Test series in Australia.
