Mohammed Siraj was observed verbally insulting Mahipal Lomror during the IPL 2023 match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals after squandering a runout opportunity. Things heated up at Bengaluru’s M. Chinnaswamy Stadium as the visiting team neared the goal, and that’s when the incident occurred.In a later video that was made public by RCB, Siraj asserted that he had apologised twice to Mahipal.
I don’t carry the aggression off the field. It all calms down post the match.”Mohammed Siraj said
“I am so angry man. Sorry. I have apologized to him twice already. I don’t carry the aggression off the field. It all calms down post the match.”Mohammed Siraj said.
Notably, Dhruv Jurel attempted to steal a second on the final delivery of the 19th over, which Lomror didn’t foresee from a distance. When Rajasthan attempted a double, Lomror hurried to grab the ball, but Siraj found it difficult to catch it because he unluckily fractured the stumps with his leg.
The talented pacer immediately reacted to Lomror’s toss by insulting his own colleague because he found it repulsive. However, the teenager didn’t react much before returning to his position in the field for the 20th over.

First to bat, the home team was completely in charge because to Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell’s second consecutive batting exhibition. Particularly noteworthy were the opener’s 62 runs off 39 deliveries and the Australia international’s 77 runs off just 44 deliveries. Based on their outstanding batting performance, RCB put 189 runs on the board in the first 20 overs.
After allowing 39 runs during his bowling performance against the Rajasthan Royals in Bangalore, Mohammed Siraj managed to take one wicket
They got off to a great start with the ball thanks to Mohammed Siraj, who took a wicket with the new ball once more. Rajasthan was under pressure from the very first over of the second innings when Jos Buttler was sent back to the pavilion in the very first over. Young players Devdutt Padikkal (52) and Yashasvi Jaiswal (47) displayed excellent calm to get the visiting team back in the game.
However, the Sanju Samson-led team quickly lost steam and found it difficult to get going after their dismissals. Dhurv Jurel’s superb batting throughout the game’s final overs increased RR’s prospects, but they ultimately lost by seven runs. As a result of their last victory, RCB rose to fifth place in the IPL Points Table.
