It was clearly another night to forget for both Royal Challengers Bangalore and its medium-pacer Mohammed Siraj.

Whenever the Royal Challengers showed signs of staging a comeback in the game against Kolkata Knight Riders, with Virat Kohli desperately eyeing a turnaround this edition, there was something or the other which kept going wrong for the Bengaluru outfit.

And on most of the occasions, it was Mohammed Siraj at the other end of the spectrum.

The 25-year old never saw things going in favour of him or his team in front of a packed Bengaluru crowd. And all of this started when Siraj gifted two boundaries to Robin Uthappa in the first over he walked in to bowl.

In the second over that he chose to take the responsibility (ninth of the innings) from Yuzvendra Chahal he lived his nightmares as he got smoked for two boundaries and a maximum off a no-ball as Lynn and Uthappa joined hands to destroy the Hyderabadi.

The ordeal, though, was far from over. Come the 11th over, Siraj happened to drop a regulation catch. And what's more, the man being granted the freebie lifeline was none other than Lynn.

We got to see another of these disasters in the 16th over, as he spilled Nitish Rana. You could clearly see a livid and red Virat Kohli on the giant screen.

To top it all, he got called for another no-ball for bowling at an extra height to Andre Russell in the third ball of the 18th over. The Caribbean despite hardly getting to middle it dispatched it to the distance.

This being the second beamer by Siraj, the umpires rightfully decided to inform Kohli that the pacer couldn't bowl anymore.

The fireworks however followed soon after this as Marcus Stoinis was handed the ball to complete Siraj's over: Crazy Dre Russ style!
