Mohammed Siraj: All you need to know about the fast bowler who earned his maiden India call-up
#4 Rising through the ranks
Siraj made his first-class debut for Hyderabad in a Group C clash against Services in the 2015/16 Ranji Trophy. However, he did not feature in any more games in the tournament. The season’s 50-overs Vijay Hazare Trophy saw him receive only a couple of opportunities.
The right-arm pacer did not deter and returned to Hyderabad’s U-23 team wherein skipper Arjun Yadav helped him hone his skills in the bowling department. Upon putting in the hard yards, he came back a better bowler and put in impressive performances in the 2016/17 Ranji Trophy.
