In a recent tweet from Royal Challengers Bangalore, the team asked their fans to predict the playing XI for today’s game against Gujarat Titans.
Go with the same playing XI or make a couple of changes? 🧐

The fans in return showered, return, by sending replies of “Drop Siraj” and surprisingly almost every comment or reply on that tweet is about dropping Mohammed Siraj.
As a RCB fan iam very much disappointed. Take a note, rest siraj give Sid kaul a chance. Rest Hazelwood bring Willey. Make some changes so that the batting line-up is steady till 8 down. We r waiting every year just to see us lifting the cup, but it's just a dream this time too.

Fans show their dissent from letting Siraj play in the most crucial game for RCB, which might certainly decide their progress for playoffs or will show an exit door.
On Friday, when the two bowlers – Josh Hazlewood and Mohammed Siraj had a nightmare from Punjab Kings’ fierce battle, fans targeted Siraj for the particular loss which created a huge setback for RCB to doubt their position in the playoffs.
Mohammed Siraj in that game bowled 2 overs and conceded 36 runs which question his spot for today’s game.
