Mohammad Siraj, speaking after the end of day’s play on Thursday at the SCG, said he was thinking about his late father when the two teams had been lining up for the national anthems at the start of the day. Siraj had been teary-eyed just before the 3rd Test started at the SCG.

Siraj’s father died in November. The pacer had stayed back in Australia to fulfil his dream of seeing him play for India.

Asked about Thursday’s emotional moment that was captured on camera, Siraj said: “Just remembered my father at that time. I was really emotional. He wanted me to see playing Test cricket.

“Wish he could see me playing for India.”

The Hyderabad bowler, who lost his father during the start of the tour, has been exceptional with the ball in his debut Test match and has managed to get better of David Warner in the ongoing match as well.
