How Mohammed Siraj missed trick vs Jos Buttler?: Explains Sachin Tendulkar

Cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar has pointed out that Royal Challengers Bangalore’s pacer Mohammed Siraj missed a trick by not bowling outswinger vs Rajasthan Royals opener Jos Buttler in the Qualifier 2 on Friday.

Rajasthan defeated Bangalore by 14 runs to book their spot in the finals. Buttler scored an unbeaten 106 runs off 60 balls to set a good chase.

“Yashasvi’s explosive start gave Buttler some breathing space. Buttler was batting on 6 after 7 balls. After that, he targeted Siraj as he knew the bowler was leaking runs. I think Siraj missed a trick against Buttler. He did not bowl a proper outswinger. He was bowling in-cutters with an angled seam and cross-seamed deliveries. He could have tried a regulation outswinger,” said Tendulkar in a video on his Youtube channel on Saturday.

Buttler had entered Qualifier 2 on the back of an indifferent run despite three centuries in the first half of the tournament. But on Friday, Buttler was literally unstoppable, carting bowlers all around the park for another century which also brought up his 800 runs in the tournament. “When Buttler gets going, it’s a joy to watch as something happens on every ball. He is unpredictable and a 360-degree player, he hit at fine leg, third man, long-on, and cover point. There was not one area where he did not hit a shot. (He displayed) brilliant bat swing and footwork.”

Rajasthan Royals will meet Gujarat Titans in the finals on Sunday.
