To win a brilliant Test series in Australia earlier this year, the Indian cricket team had to dig deep. Despite a lack of money, a number of youngsters and rookies stepped up to help India come back from a 2-1 deficit to win the series. Anand Mahindra, a businessman, had vowed to provide cars to six players who rose to fame during the series in Australia, and Mohammed Siraj was one of them. Siraj got his gift recently, and on Sunday, he thanked Anand Mahindra for the SUV on social media.
“I’m at a loss for words right now. There are no words or actions that can properly express how grateful I am for your thoughtful gift “Siraj sent out a tweet.
“For the time being, I’ll just say a huge thank you to @anandmahindra sir,” he said.
With the cricketer himself away on IPL service, Siraj posted a photo of his brother and mother receiving the car.
Siraj made his Test debut in the second Test, which India won in Melbourne.
With casualties piling up, Siraj was the Indian bowling attack’s leader by the time the fourth Test arrived, despite only having played two Tests.
T Natarajan and Washington Sundar both made their Test debuts in the final Test, though Saini had only played one.
It was Shardul Thakur’s second Test, but he bowled just 1.4 overs before picking up an injury in his only previous outing for India in the longest version of the game.
At the Gabba, Siraj claimed a five-wicket haul in the second innings, ensuring India’s landmark victory and series victory.
