However, Siraj has lost his place in the playing XI during the previous 2024 T20 World Cup match against Afghanistan. Kuldeep Yadav replaced him, as India opted for three frontline pacers in the group stage. The surfaces in New York were conducive for fast bowlers, but the team changed their strategy upon landing in the West Indies for Super 8. They reinforced their spin department by dropping Siraj and bringing in Yadav. Siraj was decent with the ball, but better performances from Arshdeep Singh, who adds variety to the bowling attack with his left-arm angle, led to his axing.

Former India captain Anil Kumble expressed his views on the matter, saying in an interview with ESPNcricinfo that Kuldeep Yadav’s performances put him ahead of Siraj. He noted that Arshdeep’s ability to bowl in different areas of the T20 game and add variety with his left-arm pace makes him a more suitable option. Do you agree with Kumble’s views?
