Mohammed Siraj picked his maiden 5 wicket haul in the second innings at Brisbane against Australia. Twitter was all compliments for Siraj after he again performed exceedingly well. Siraj lost his father when he was in Australia but decided to stay and make him proud by representing India in Test cricket.

The fast bowler got his chance after an injury to Mohammed Shami and made his debut at the mighty MCG. The 26-year-old since then has never looked back and continued to perform to the best of his abilities.
