Mohammad Siraj said that when he was bowling, the ball was not going at a good speed. Other than this, the ball was not swinging either. After which my plan was to bowl stump to stump. My plan was that if I bowled cheaply there would be pressure on the batsmen and wickets could be taken from the other end. During this, KL Rahul told me that the ball does not turn from the first over. After which I decided to go hard bowling. Also, the Indian fast bowler said that this wicket is excellent for batting.
