On the eve of the match of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) against Sunrises Hyderabad (SRH), the team went to their teammate Mohammed Siraj’s house for dinner.
Siraj’s parents were in for a big surprise when Virat Kohli & Co. came to the house. RCB skipper Virat along with Washington Sundar, Parthiv Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal and some others went to the pacer’s house at Tolichowki. Last year, Siraj shifted to his new house in Tolichowki from the two-room house in the narrow lanes of Khaja Nagar, Banjara Hills.
Reportedly, they sat on the floor and enjoyed the dinner. They were also served patthar ka gosht, korma, khoobani ka mertha and double ka meetha besides biryani. The cricketers also watched Mumbai Indians (MI) vs Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) match while having the biriyani. There they spent around 2 hours before returning back to the hotel.
Later, Mohammed Siraj uploaded a picture with his family and the teammates on his official Instagram handle. He also thanked the teammates for taking out the time from their busy schedules and makes it into the dinner at his home.
The caption of the post read “ALHUMDULILLAH!!! It was an honour for me and my Family to welcome you all Thanks a lot for taking out your precious time and joining us at place for dinner It really means a lot”.
Here’s the post:
Mohammed Siraj came into the limelight after his wonderful performance in the domestic cricket back in 2017. He was then picked by Sunrises Hyderabad (SRH) for Rs 2.6 crore. He performed well with the franchise but the team failed to retain him. He was bought by his current team RCB for Rs 1 crore in January auctions.
Siraj had a wonderful game for RCB in Hyderabad yesterday, nailing his yorkers at the death and cranking up some serious pace.
