India's victory at the Lords Cricket Stadium, taking a 1-0 lead in the five-match test series, is a game the team and fans will remember for ages. However, Hyderabadis will remember this game a little more than others because of one man, Mohammed Siraj.


 The player who played his debut series in England and his first game at the Lords, which cricketers and fans call the home of cricket, blew through the English top and lower order with his excellent seam bowling. The bowler took a mind-blowing 8/126 in two innings and marked the return of a fast bowling era joining the successful duo of Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah, who never fails to surprise. 


The boy from Towlichowki, who grew up in a middle-class family and dreamed of making it big, was supported by his late father, who used to drive the auto and pay for his upbringing. He has had the best debut year any player could dream of after his heroics in Brisbane in Australia earlier this year, his debut test series overseas which India clinched with the likes of his bowling and another debutant Rishab pant. 


Siraj's pace bowling and his energy have been often regarded as the most positive and motivational. He is considered a player with similar energy to captain Kohli. From a Hyderabadi cricket fan's perspective, this test match victory speaks volumes about Siraj's contribution to the team. Though criticized slightly in the first innings for his over-excited reviews that India lost, he proved the captain and the crew wrong with all his skill and pace in the second innings when he got another four wickets and got the reviews proper.


 According to Harsha Bhogle, the commentator that hails from the city and is one of the most analytical non-playing commentators described Siraj is a bowler that doesn't bowl a straight length and looks to seam in every ball and his run-up has the only intention of getting a wicket. As he might have fixed his place in the Test Squad for quite a while, the boy from the gully is yet to blow minds in the ODI just like he does for the RCB in the T20 format in IPL.
