New Delhi. Former Australia vice-captain David Warner wants pacer Mohammad Siraj to play in the final of the World Test Championship. He said that Siraj had troubled the Australian team a lot and he could do better in the WTC final against New Zealand as well. The WTC final is to be played between India and New Zealand from June 18, which will be played at the Aegis Bowl in Southampton.
Warner said in a conversation with ‘Sports Today’, ‘If the pitch remains flat in England, then the pacers can perform better. Then it is very hot. He further said, ‘Siraj had troubled Australia a lot. His consistency is amazing. I have also played a few matches against him. Siraj has very little experience and has played five Test matches in his career so far but he has managed to make an impact. He has taken a total of 16 wickets in Tests.

Siraj played three matches in the series against Australia and took a total of 13 wickets. Not only this, he took a total of 3 wickets against England. Warner said that Ishant Sharma is a tall fast bowler and his ball can also trouble a lot. He said that the selectors will have a lot of trouble as to who should be given a chance and who should be left. Warner also praised Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami.
