Royal Challengers Bangalore may have won by 8 wickets in the fifth match of IPL against Mumbai Indians, but the team's fast bowler Mohammed Siraj has recorded the most embarrassing record of IPL in his name in the match.
Siraj took the class of the opposing team while bowling tremendously in the beginning against Mumbai Indians, but in the last over, Mohammad Siraj bowled not one, but 5 wide balls and gave free runs to the batsmen of Mumbai team. With this, Siraj holds the record of bowling the longest over in IPL history.
Longest over in IPL history, Mohammed Siraj bowled tremendously at the beginning of the innings. He gave only 2 runs in his first over and only 1 run in his second over. At the same time, in the third over, he took the big wicket of Ishaan Kishan. After this, even in the 5th over of the innings, Siraj bowled economically and did not give any special chance to the Mumbai batsmen to score runs.
