If you are talented, you will be the only one who can make it to the national team in a country like India where the population is enormous and the popularity of the game has reached new heights.
Mohammad Siraj, the star bowler for India, recently discussed his personal struggles, revealing that there was a time when he only received 70 rupees as pocket money and never had enough money to buy a pair of cricket shoes.
“Mere Jitna Struggle Kisi ne nahi Dekha Hoga Apni Life Main,” he said in response to other inquiries regarding his life.
In an exclusive conversation with Gaurav Kapur for Breakfast with Champions, Siraj opened up about his personal life, revealing that his mother had advised him to prioritise his studies above playing cricket because his older brother was an engineer.
He said that when the day came in my life, “He passed away so I miss him totally,” adding that his father had backed him greatly and had wanted me to play Test Cricket.
Siraj also discussed his admiration for Virat Kohli and his dedication to his career even after doing great things on the cricket pitch.
He’s my favourite because of his zeal for the game and commitment.
