Mohammed Siraj is an Indian cricketer. He played for Hyderabad, Royal Challengers Banglore, and India national as well as an international cricket team.
Siraj made news when he was bought by Sunrisers Hyderabad for the price of 2.6 crores before the start of IPL 2017. Despite his less experience in the domestic cricket what caught the eye of the franchise is the ability of him to hit the deck hard and the accuracy.
He son of an auto Rickshaw driver. His story is yet another great example of hard work and dedication. In the beginning of his career, he was practicing as a batsman who could also bowl a little bit. He grew up by playing tennis ball cricket and almost self-taught. His father put a great effort to make sure his son gets enough money so that he can go to play domestic cricket.
He began to play cricket from the class seven. His rise as a bowler is remarkably swift. In 2015 he bowled with a cricket ball for the first time. In 2017 he got the IPL contract of 2.6 crores. After some month he was wearing an Indian Tshirt and bowling in a T20 International against New Zeland.
Siraj has a decent run-up. However, he is a right arm and by his own admission is a natural at getting the bowl to swing into the right-hander. He was always capable of bowling a quick and accurate bouncer to the batsman which impressed his captain David Warner and the coach VVS Laxman in the Sunrisers Hyderabad set-up.
He was the state’s highest wicket-taker playing only the second season of Ranji Trophy with 41 Wickets in nine matches.
