MS Dhoni Roasting of Mohammed Siraj Remembered by the Cricket Player, Mohammed Siraj, the Indian bowler, has had the opportunity to share the dressing room with many legends, including MS Dhoni. The pacer recently recounted an incident that showcased how entertaining the legend can be with his witty one-liners.
MS Dhoni Roasting of Mohammed Siraj Remembered by the Cricket Player, On one occasion, Siraj requested a bat from Dhoni after observing that everyone else was doing the same. In response, Dhoni humorously pointed out that Siraj usually bats lower down the order and may require a chest pad to protect himself from bouncers.
Here’s what Mohammed Siraj had to say about his chat with Thala on the show ‘Breakfast with Champions‘:
“Dhoni bhai once came into the dressing room with pads on. Everybody around was asking for bat from him so even I asked. He replied to me by saying, “Why do you need a bat? You need a chest pad. Wait I will order one for you.” He also said that if I increase the stroke of this bat, he would give me two more bats.”
Siraj also talked about the significant role played by former Indian bowling coach Bharat Arun in enabling him to have a continuous run for Hyderabad in the Ranji Trophy. He went on to say:
“I had played a Ranji Trophy game for Hyderabad and had picked up a wicket, but was dropped later. I wasn’t even selected in the squad later, but the following year, Bharat Arun sir saw me bowling in the nets ahead of RCB vs SRH game. He asked Laxman sir about me but nobody knew. Next year Arun sir came into Hyderabad cricket as head coach. He demanded that he wanted me in the team. He believed in me and I was the highest wicket-taker that year.”

As per MS Dhoni Roasting of Mohammed Siraj, The revelation made by Mohammed Siraj that he had contemplated retiring from professional cricket during the shutdown may have surprised a few. Siraj’s poor performance for RCB in the IPL, where he consistently conceded runs, frightened him to the extent that he resolved to give himself one last chance.
During the lockdown, the pacer dedicated himself to training and emerged as a completely transformed bowler in the ongoing IPL 2023. In response, he stated:
“The amount of failures I have seen, no one else would have. I used to get hammered almost every game earlier for RCB. Moreover, this social media is such a dirty place, you have to be far away from it. I had decided in lockdown that I had to work on myself for a year, or I would quit cricket and do a job. I worked on my fitness and bowling, and after that it has been just completely different level of satisfaction to play the game.”
Mohammed Siraj has rapidly made a name for himself as one of India’s most notable pacers in both ODIs and Tests.
