Royal Challengers Bangalore pacer Mohammed Siraj became the first bowler in Indian Premier League to bowl two maiden overs as he grabbed three wickets in nine balls to cripple Kolkata Knight Riders early in their match on Wednesday.
He bowled back-to-back maidens to start his spell and got the wickets of Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana and Tom Banton to skittle KKR’s top order.
Tripathi and Rana were dismissed in consecutive delivers in his first over as one edged behind and the other was clean bowled on a duck. Banton was caught by wicketkeeper AB de Villers as well.
