Australia vs India, 3rd Test: Mohammed Siraj In Tears While Singing Indian National Anthem
Mohammed Siraj was in tears when the Indian national anthem was played before the start of the third Test against Australia in Sydney on Thursday. Siraj, who is playing only his second Test after having made his debut in the Melbourne Test earlier in the series, got India their first wicket by dismissing the returning David Warner. The 26-year-old fast bowler had lost his father late last year but chose to stay with the team in Australia to play in the Tests. An injury to Mohammed Shami during the first Test in Adelaide opened the doors for Siraj in the second, where he returned 2 for 40 and 3 for 37.
