Mother wanted me to stay here to fulfil father’s dream: Siraj on not flying back home

Indian cricketer Mohammad Siraj had recently lost his father who was his biggest support when it comes to the game.

Siraj is currently in the bio-bubble in Australia and had to miss out the final rites of his father. While BCCI allowed Siraj to fly back home, the pacer chose not to in order to realize his father’s dream.

“My father was my biggest support, it’s a big loss for me. My father’s wish was to see me play for India. My mindset is to fulfill his dream. My father is not here in this world but he is with me all the time,” Siraj told BCCI in a video interview.

“My mom reminded me of my father’s dreams. She asked me to stay there and perform well for India and fulfill my father’s dream,” he added.

Talking about the support he is getting from his teammates during this difficult times, Siraj said that the teammates asked him to focus on his dad’s dreams.

“My teammates have been very supportive, making sure I am not facing any problem here. Virat bhai encouraged me, told me not to take tension and stay strong and focus on fulfilling your dad’s dreams. He told me that staying strong in this situation will help not just me but my family as well,” Siraj said.

India will take on Australia in the ODI series on November 27.
