'Boy Has Become A Man': Siraj's Maiden Fifer Impresses Legendary Indian Cricketers
Former Indian cricketers, including the likes of Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag, on Monday, lavished rich praise on Mohammed Siraj after the right-arm fast bowler picked up his maiden five-wicket haul in Test cricket.
On Monday, Siraj returned with figures of 5/73 in just his third Test as India bundled out Australia for 294 in their second innings in the fourth and final Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Along with Siraj, Shardul Thakur also picked four wickets in Australia's second essay with the bat.
India, then during their chase of 328, reached 4/0 before rain forced early stumps on Day Four of the match. They will need to score 324 more runs on Tuesday to win the match and clinch the four-match series.
The boy has become a man on this tour. Siraj, Leader of the attack in his first Test series and he has led from.the front. The way newcomers have performed for India on this tour will be etched in memories for a long long time. Will be fitting if they retain the trophy. pic.twitter.com/8bRvMI1iwR— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) January 18, 2021
