India vs Australia: Mohammad Siraj with expensive debut in ODI now after T20I

Mohammad Siraj created an unwanted record by bowling the second-most expensive figures by an Indian bowler on ODI debut. The pacer also has India's second-most expensive figures on T20I debut.

India vs Australia: Mohammad Siraj made his debut in the second ODI of the three-match ODI series.

Mohammad Siraj, who made his debut in the second ODI of the three-match ODI series, created an unwanted record by bowling the second-most expensive figures by an Indian bowler on ODI debut. The pacer also has India’s second-most expensive figures on T20I debut.

Replacing Khaleel Ahmed in the playing XI, Siraj, who became the 225th Indian ODI player, did not have an ideal start to his International ODI career. He gave away the most number of runs by an Indian bowler on debut, was hit for 76 runs by Australian batsmen.

The Hyderabad pacer’s figures (10-0-76-0) are the second most expensive for any Indian bowler on ODI debut. Karsan Ghavri holds the record for the most expensive figures on debut, having conceded 83 in 11 overs against England in 1975 in his maiden ODI appearance.

Coincidentally, Siraj holds the unwanted record of second-most expensive figures on T20I debut. In 2017, Siraj had given away 57 runs on his T20I debut for India against New Zealand in Rajkot.
