Sydney: Despite the death of his father, away from the family, Indian fast bowler Mohammad Siraj (Mohammed Siraj) has made a statement for the first time. He told what his mother had advised him.
He said, ‘Ammi said that one day everybody has to go. Today your father went, tomorrow I can be. Do what your father wanted. Play for India. He may not be physically present but I can feel that he is always present with me ‘.
At the same time, captain Virat Kohli’s advice to ‘strengthen’ in the preparation of the series against Australia has helped him a lot.
Kohli has also faced personal tragedy, carrying out professional responsibilities. Kohli was a teenager in 2007 when his father died during a Ranji Trophy match, but he returned to the ground the next day to score a brilliant innings of 97 for Delhi.

Mohammed Gaus, father of Siraj (Mohammed Siraj), died in Hyderabad last week due to a lung disease. He was 53 years old. The Cricket Board of India (BCCI) gave Siraj the option to return home but this fast bowler decided to play for the national team.
26-year-old Siraj said on the sidelines of the training session of the Indian team here, ‘Virat Bhai said that Mian don’t take stress and be strong. Your father wanted you to play for India. So do it and don’t take stress’.
He said, ‘The captain told me that if you can become strong in this situation then it will help you. These were positive words from the Indian captain and he was very happy to hear them ‘.
In the early years of Siraj as a cricketer, his father used to drive an auto rickshaw and he has a great influence on this cricketer.
He said, ‘This is a big loss for me because he was my biggest supporter. He wanted me to shine for my country and now I want to make his dreams come true.
