Siraj’s performance was very good throughout the Test series and this young bowler was highly praised by Sachin Tadalukar to all the great players of cricket.

It is worth noting that in the day-night Test match played in Edishad, Team India lost by 8 wickets to Australia. India’s team could score only 36 runs in the second innings. Speaking to Sports Today, Siraj said, ‘Ravi Shastri said that 36 allouts happen once in cricket, it will never happen again. The atmosphere of the team was quite good. I have known Arun sir since my domestic cricket days, his role has been very important in my career. He knew that he could. Being Ajinkya showed faith in me and I lived up to that belief. I enjoyed myself a lot. ‘

The Indian team was heavily troubled by the players’ injuries in the Test series against Australia and Mohammed Siraj had to lead the team’s bowling in the Brisbane Test after Jasprit Bumrah and Ashwin were injured in the Sydney Test. Talking on this, Siraj said, ‘It was quite a challenge for me to lead the recent attack in my third Test match. My plan was not to take wickets, I just wanted to raise the under by dot ball. The plan was to bring the visitor in motion and make a mistake. I bowled well in the first innings, but I did not get much wickets, I was upset in the dressing room, but Bharat Arun sir told me that I hoped to bowl better. He said that my bowling was excellent and I was not judged for not taking wickets. He said that Test cricket is like this, you don’t get many wickets today, but you can get wickets tomorrow and I got reward in the second innings.
