Mohammed Siraj has become a national hero after his incredible performances in the Test series against Australia. Siraj grabbed his maiden opportunity in whites with both hands as he impressed everyone with his relentless bowling. It was an emotional tour for Siraj as he lost his father and also faced unacceptable racial abuse from a certain section of the Aussie crowd.
However, Siraj was unfazed and against all odds helped India win the Brisbane Test and the series 2-1. The fast bowler picked 13 wickets in 3 Tests and ended the series as the leading wicket-taker for team India. His 5 wicket haul in the decisive Brisbane Test will remain in the minds of every cricket fan forever.
After returning to India, Siraj went straight to the grave of his late father and offered his prayers. Siraj’s father was his biggest support system throughout his career and always wanted to see his son playing for India. The 26-year-old certainly made his father proud as he gave his heart and soul in the historic Test series against Australia.

Meanwhile, after Siraj returned to India he spoke about how his mother reacted after she met him after 6 months. He stated that his mother was waiting for him during these emotional times for his family and was a different feeling when he finally met her.
“I didn’t go home, directly. I went to the graveyard straight from the airport, I went there to sit with my dad for some time. I couldn’t speak to him but offered flowers to his grave”, Siraj said.
“And then I came home. When I met my mom, she started crying. Then I tried to console her, telling her not to cry. It was a different feeling. After 6-7 months, her son had come home. Mom was always waiting for me to return. She was counting down how many days were left for me to return”, Siraj has said to Sports Today.
