Mohammed Siraj

Gully Boy of Cricket


A right-arm bowler, Mohammed Siraj's meteoric growth reached its peak when he took his historic maiden 5-wicket haul in his debut series at the MCG against Australia in 2021.

The son of an auto-rickshaw driver became the nation's toast for coming a long way from bowling barefoot in the by-lanes of Hyderabad to being instrumental in India winning the above-mentioned Border- Gavaskar Trophy 2021.

 He first emerged as one of the most exciting Indian domestic cricket circuit players during the 2016 Ranji Trophy tournament. He became the highest wicket-taker for Hyderabad with 41 wickets.

Soon he bagged an IPL contract worth Rs 2.6 crore from Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2017, a deal that would finally elevate him and his family from poverty. He gave an excellent performance in the latest 2022 IPL playing for RCB.
