Mohammed Siraj became the first player ever to bowl two maiden overs in a single Indian Premier League (IPL) match during Royal Challengers Bangalore’s (RCB) clash against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old bowler picked up three crucial early wickets and helped the Virat Kohli-led side be in the driving seat in Abu Dhabi right from the start.

Siraj rattled KKR in the first four overs of their innings as he dismissed opener Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana and Tom Banton in his first two overs without conceding a run off the bat.

The Hyderabad-born fast bowler gave away only two runs in his third over and finished his first spell of three overs with figures of 3/2.

Siraj has 34 IPL wickets from 30 matches at 27.94 and an economy rate of 9.13 with best figures of 4/32. Meanwhile, his team, RCB, are placed third on the points table with 12 points from nine matches.
