Mohammed Siraj Posts an Emotional Instagram Story: After sealing India’s place in the World Cup 2023 final, the India fast bowler Mohammed Siraj put up an emotional Instagram story for his late father, Mohammed Ghaus, who had passed away three years ago.
It was a tragedy for the fast bowler who couldn’t be present when his father died in November 2020, as he was in Australia and couldn’t return home because of the strict 14-day quarantine rule.
As per Mohammed Siraj Posts an Emotional Instagram Story, Mohammed Siraj has picked up form as the World Cup has progressed. He had his worst match in the semi-final against New Zealand, leaking 78 runs in 9 overs, but Mohammed Shami’s 7-wicket haul, and the massive total of 397, meant India recorded a 70-run win.
Mohammed Siraj is likely to retain his place in the XI for Sunday’s final against Australia, unless the curators give a heavily spin-friendly, dry surface at the Narendra Modi Stadium; a spin surface could interest R Ashwin against the two left-handed Aussie openers. But for now, Siraj’s place in the World Cup final looks secure.

The final, in Ahmedabad, is set to define the legacies of many great players on both sides. The Men In Blue, with their 130,000-strong support at the Narendra Modi Stadium, will start as slight favorites.
