After back-to-back series wins against New Zealand, India will next take on Australia in the historic Border Gavaskar Trophy. Needing to win at least 3 matches in the series to qualify for the 2023 Test Championship final, the Indian cricket team is training in Nagpur for the first match starting on February 9. All the Indian players including Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Ashwin are engaged in intensive training. In that situation, Tamil Nadu player Ashwin, who completed the training yesterday, uploaded an interesting video for his fans on his YouTube page as usual.
In particular, Ashwin praised Mohammed Siraj, who has made an impressive performance in the recent Sri Lanka and New Zealand ODI series and has advanced to become the new number one bowler in the world in the ICC rankings. Mohammad Siraj, who made his ODI debut last year in 2019, was dropped in the first match as he scored runs in the first match and in the IPL series, he was teased as a run machine and the next successor of Ashok Dinta and drive an auto like your father.
Attempting to speak in Tamil:
However, he used the then captain Virat Kohli’s continued faith and support in the Bengaluru team and fought hard and performed well. So, he made his debut in Test cricket and played the 2nd match of his career in February 2022 after showing excellent performance in a Gaba-like victory. Since then, he has performed tremendously in most of the matches and has advanced in the rankings and today he has a record as the number one bowler.
“Number one ODI bowler” How to be. “How to feel”, Ashwin tried to make Siraj speak in Tamil. But Siraj, who did not know Tamil, smiled and replied that he felt fine. After the training session, Ashwin was again interviewed in the car on his way back to the hotel, this time in Hindi asking him how he felt about reaching the number one spot.
Siraj replied as follows. “I feel better. But I never dreamed that I would become a number one bowler. I feel very good about getting this position,” he said. This video of Indian players talking very funny is going viral on social media.
Considering that Ashwin will be the biggest challenger in the upcoming Border – Gavaskar Trophy, the Australian players including Steve Smith have been practicing hard against the local bowler who bowls like him. Meanwhile, Mohammad Siraj has been a key factor behind historic wins overseas at London’s Lord’s and the Gabba in recent times.
So, we can be sure that he will give Australia a big challenge in this series as well, who has already shown good performance in ODI cricket without Burmah. It is significant that the expectations of the fans of both countries have increased as to who will win this series which is going to be hot.
