A sturdy and athletic Siraj has a discreet run-up, which initially suggests that he is left-handed but he is not. He is, however, a right-arm bowler which allows him naturally to swing the ball away from the right-hander which allows him to take wickets if a slip is set in from early on. His bouncer deliveries are also up to the mark. He impressed David Warner and VVS Laxman when they first saw him at the nets practicing.
