Mohammed Siraj Breaks Down During National Anthem: The incident went viral on social networking site Twitter.
Why Mohammed Siraj Breaks Down During National Anthem? An interesting incident happened during the first day of the third test of the Border Gavaskar Trophy. Cricketer Mohammed Siraj could be seen ‘crying’ while the Indian national anthem was being played.
The incident went viral on social networking site Twitter and pretty dozens of woke liberals were trying to convey that Mohammed Siraj cried because of the emotions which he felt for India.
Twitter went nuts as top ex Indian cricketers like Mohammad Kaif and Wasim Jaffer ‘misjudged’ that Mohammed Siraj cried out of love for his country. Again, we are not trying to say that Siraj doesn’t love his country. We all do love our dear Bharat Mata.
The actual reason for him crying like that was that he suddenly ‘remembered’ his late father. Who died nearly two months ago. Because his father wants to see his son playing cricket for the Indian cricket team.
As for the test match itself, the Siraj performed well and was able to take a crucial wicket of Australian opener David Warner. Who got out after scoring just 5 runs. Siraj’s economy rate was also decent and it stood at 3.29.
While in the last test which India won, Siraj managed to take 2 wickets in the first innings of the Australians. The ones whom he dismissed were Marnus Labuschagne and Cameron Green.
In Australia’s second innings in that match, Siraj managed to take 3 wickets in total to his name. He dismissed Travis Head, Cameron Green and Nathan Lyon.
Hopefully, Indian cricketers who have played for India before will stop doing ‘patriotic politics’ over sad incidents like these. On the one hand, Siraj was trying to remember his father. On the other hand, Twitter users were giving this whole incident a political flavor.
Hopefully, misunderstandings like these would be avoided in the near future. So that at least cricket will be spared from such kind of cheap politics.
