Meanwhile, back in Mohammed Siraj’s hometown in Hyderabad his friends and relatives have sculpted a huge cut out of him to honor his recent success. They made a tall figure of him with his famous ‘finger on the lips celebration’ with the blue Team India jersey on.

Mohammed Siraj Opens Up On His Iconic Celebration
Siraj also spoke about his famous celebration at the end of the third day’s play at the press conference. The cricketer in his reply said that the celebration was a message for all his critics asking them to just keep shut.
“This story (celebration) is for the haters (critics) 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” said Siraj.
The Indian pacer ended with eight wickets in the Test match as India registered a famous win. In the process, Virat Kohli won his 37th Test match as India captain and overtook Clive Lloyd’s tally. Kohli is now just behind Graeme Smith and Ricky Ponting in the list of captains with most Test wins.
