India defeated Australia by six wickets in the second One-day International (ODI) in Adelaide on Tuesday to level the three-match series 1-1. Virat Kohli’s 104 runs and MS Dhoni’s spectacular batting in the end guided team India towards victory, but netizens on Twitter trolled Mohammed Siraj for his poor performance.
Indian fast bowler Mohammed Siraj, who made his One Day International debut against Australia in Adelaide during the 2nd ODI, got trolled on Twitter for leaking runs.
Mohammed Siraj replaced Jasprit Bumrah in the squad for the Australia and New Zealand tour after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had rested India’s fast bowler Bumrah for India vs Australia ODI series and also for the upcoming tour of New Zealand.
Siraj conceded 76 runs on his debut, without picking a single wicket after bowling 10 overs. Indian fans took on Twitter to troll his performance, with some of them feeling Mohammed Siraj is the only burden the Indian bowling attack is currently carrying.

Unless there's a magical wicket taking spell of miserly bowling for the last 6 overs, #TeamIndia is going to be chasing a score well over 300. Resting #Bumrah has come back to bite the team. Mohammed Siraj has a lot of potential but his line has been erratic today. #AUSvIND
