Mohammed Siraj has become the first bowler to bowl two maiden overs in the same Indian Premier League (IPL) match.
He returned figures of three wickets for no runs from his first two overs for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Wednesday in Abu Dhabi.
In the first four overs of the innings Siraj dismissed opener Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana and Tom Banton in his first two overs without conceding a run off the bat. He gave away a run only in his third over and finished his first spell of three overs with figures of 3-2-2-3.
Siraj has 34 IPL wickets from 30 matches at 27.94 and a economy rate of 9.13 with best figures of 4 for 32.
