T20 World Cup: Fast bowler Mohammad Siraj has not got a place in Team India for the T20 World Cup to be played in UAE. Siraj has expressed his heartache for the first time after team selection. Siraj is disappointed at not being able to make it to the team and has said that it was his dream to play in the World Cup.
Siraj had a great performance in the recently concluded tour of England. Siraj took eight wickets in the Lord’s Test and was instrumental in helping the team to a 151-run win and take a 1-0 lead. Siraj’s selection in the T20 World Cup was considered almost certain due to his excellent performance on the tour of Australia and England.
However, Siraj has also talked about his future plans. Siraj said, “The selection is not in our hands. Playing in the T20 World Cup was definitely a dream. But that doesn’t mean it’s all over. I have many more goals. The biggest target is the team’s match. The main role is to play in helping him win.”
Credit given to Virat Kohli for victory
Siraj described his experience of England tour as good. The fast bowler said, “The tour of England was a wonderful experience by any stretch of the imagination. I am glad that I could build the trust of my captain Virat bhai, head coach Ravi Shastri, the support staff and the entire team.”
Kohli has credited his success to captain Virat Kohli. The star player said a piece of advice from Kohli before the England series helped him during the tour and that led him to pick up his eight wickets at Lord’s.
