Twitter reacts after Mohammed Siraj's sloppy fielding at the boundary rope
This the 16th game of the Indian Premier League where Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals are engaged with each other at the MA Chidambaram stadium in Chennai.
Speaking about the match, Virat Kohli won the toss for the second time in IPL and elected to bowl first. RCB executed their plans very well in the powerplay as cleared the top-order with cheap scores.
Mohammed Siraj was once again impressed with the ball as he bagged three wickets off Jos Buttler, David Miller and Rahul Tewatia by giving away just 27 runs in his spell. However, the talented bowler failed to do give the same performance on the field.
During the 12th over of the game bowled by Harshal Patel, Riyal Parag hit the ball towards Mohammed Siraj who let the ball go over the boundary rope.
