Former Indian fast bowler Ashish Nehra believes that Mohammed Siraj has better skills than Jasprit Bumrah and is better than him in many ways.
Nehra said in a conversation with Cricbuzz that in the last three-four years, everyone is talking about Jasprit Bumrah. He is a good bowler. No doubt. But if you talk about skill, then in my view, Siraj is not behind them in any matter. He further said that there are some bowlers that you will keep in T20 or ODI. But Siraj can bowl well in every format. There is no dearth of skill in them. He has variety in bowling and in this case he is also ahead of Bumrah.

This left-arm fast bowler further said that Siraj has speed. They know how to throw different types of slow balls. They can also swing the new ball. They just have to sharpen their fitness and mind as a bowler. If they are successful in doing this, then the sky is open for them. They can go much further.Siraj took 5 wickets so far in IPL 2021
