Mohammed Siraj was in poor form in Royal Challengers Bangalore's Qualifier 1 match against Rajasthan Royals on Friday, going for an expensive 31 runs in two overs as the Faf du Plessis-led side lost by seven wickets at the Narendra Modi Stadium.
Siraj, in addition to being expensive, has set an unwelcome record by becoming the first player in the history of the tournament to concede 30 sixes in a single Indian Premier League season.
Trolling Siraj is understandable, but bringing his late father's profession to disregard him is just a worst behaviour!😑— 𝐀𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐲𝐚𝐡 | (𝐝𝐞𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐝) (@Aaliya_Zain5) May 28, 2022

Siraj had a horrible season, there's no denying it. Much like Virat, he was a liability throughout. But guess what? His performance gives you NO RIGHT to abuse him. You've got to be one sick individual to sink so low as to even drag his late father.— Ishika (@IshikaMullick) May 28, 2022

Criticise Siraj as much as u want but keep it to constructive criticism.— Rohan 🏏 (@Rohantweetss) May 28, 2022
Don't bring his father's profession into this. That is absolutely disgusting
As RCB once again bowed out of the competition, fans on social media slammed him for his poor performance. Many of his supporters, however, believe that being out of shape is just part of life and have retaliated against his critics.
