Much has been written and talked about the celebration style of Mohammad Siraj. He scalped 4 wickets in the second test match ENG vs IND at Lord’s. After picking up every wicket, he was celebrating in an unfamiliar way. While some fans have founded it fascinating, some have also criticized it. After a lot of discussion among people, Siraj explained about his ‘finger on lips’ celebration in the post-match press conference.
The Indian pacer said, “This story is for the haters because they used to say a lot of things about me like he cannot do this and cannot do that. So, I will only let my ball do the talking and hence this is my new style of celebration.”
Someone asked him about an incident that took place on the third day of the second match. A few fans have thrown a cork at KL Rahul during the first session. Siraj replied, “I did not actually notice what happened but nothing was said by the public.”
In the post-match conference, he also discussed the reason behind four fast bowlers in the team. He said, “It was important because we have taken three wickets at the start and our fast bowlers were effective and bowling consistently in one area,” he said.
He also added, “The role of fast bowlers is important in England because when you come to England, you want to try things, but our plan here was to be consistent and bowl at one place.”
