Abu Dhabi: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) fast bowler Mohammad Siraj became the first bowler to bowl two maiden overs in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match on Wednesday.
Siraj performed this feat against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. KKR, who won the toss, first wanted to bat against RCB. Siraj was seen in his best game as he did not score any runs in his first two overs and he also took the wickets of Rahul Tripathi and Nitish Rana.

KKR got off to a terrible start as Shobman Gill, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, and Tom Ponton recorded single-digit scores. In the match against RCB, KKR made two changes in the XI match they were playing, replacing Andre Russell and Sivam Mavi with Tom Ponton and Prasidh Krishna.
On the other hand, from the last match against Rajasthan Royals, RCB made a change in the XI team they play for. The Virat Kohli-led side brought in Mohammad Siraj to replace Shahbaz Ahmed.
When these two teams locked the horns in the matches at the start of this season, the team led by Virat Kohli emerged victorious in Sharjah.
Both KKR and RCP have played in nine matches so far. RCB have won six matches and are currently third in the points table with 12 points.
KKR, on the other hand, are fourth with 10 points from nine matches.
