Some really heart breaking news coming in for Indian speedster Md. Siraj whose father passed away on Friday. Reportedly, he was suffering a lung ailment and breathed his last in Hyderabad.
Siraj is the part of the Test squad of the Indian team for the Australia tour. Unfortunately, because of the Covid-19 situation and the bio-bubble protocol, the 26-year old would not be able to go to India for his father’s last rites.
After hearing the news, Siraj stated to a news website that his dad is the biggest support in his life.
“My dad’s wish was always this – mera beta, desh ka Naam Roshan Karna (my son, you should make my country proud). And, I will do that for sure,” the pacer told Sportstar. “It is shocking. I lost the biggest support of my life. It was his dream to see me play for the country and I am glad that way I could realise that and bring joy for him,”
RCB pacer Siraj even earlier stated that his father’s health condition was not so good and he was really worried for the same. In a video posted by RCB after theor game against KKR, this is what the Hyderabad paceman had to say:
“My dad is unwell these days. His lungs are in bad shape so he has difficulty breathing. I am really worried about that. I can’t even go home to meet and motivate him. I talk on the phone but whenever I do, he starts crying. I can’t even talk for longer hours because I don’t like seeing him crying. So I disconnect the phone early because I can’t hold myself for long. So, I pray to God for his good health. He was admitted to the hospital before the last game. I was really concerned that dad was in the hospital,”
