Wasim Jaffer tweets quoting MS Dhoni after seeing Mohammed Siraj in tears while singing national anthem in Sydney – cricket

Former Indian opener Wasim Jaffer, quoted legendary Indian cricketer MS Dhoni, described the feelings of a young tuner, Mohammed Siraj, who had torn out of control and torn his feelings at the Sydney cricket ground on Thursday. Tears struck Shiraz’s eyes while calling the country before the start of the India vs. Australia 3rd test.

Jaffer shared a snapshot of the moment and described Siraj’s feelings on Twitter.

“Even if there is little or no crowd to cheer you on, there is no better motivation than playing for India. According to legend,’It’s not about running for the audience, but for the country,’ tweeted Jaffer.

The quote “You don’t run for the crowd…” used by Jaffer is from MS Dhoni. The former Indian captain said that India was by chance the only defeat in that tournament after losing a group stage match against South Africa at the 2011 World Cup.

The reason Jaffer used Dhoni’s quote after seeing tears in Siraj’s eyes is to highlight the fact that only 25{74ca91e3bee52d91843c282edd75c0800a88a3d8744a3a1c83b7ba867058fc3c} of the crowd is allowed in SCG, despite Covid-19 restrictions and despite Siraj’s high emotional level.

Hyderabad Seamer debuted in the second test match of the series and returned with five wickets from the match. 2 times is 1 time, 3 times is 2 times.

This is not the first time Shiraz collapsed when singing the national anthem. There was a similar scene when Siraj made his T20I debut in India against New Zealand at Rajkot in 2017.

The right arm medium pacer had to acquire a test cap after years of polishing in domestic cricket and India A.

He gave India a good start in his third test by removing Australian opener David Warner early. Siraj pitched wide and Warner had a wide drive without moving his feet a lot to maintain a positive stance, eventually gaining an outside edge.

India made two changes to the XI play for this test. Rohit Sharma took the place of Mayank Agarwal, and Navdeep Saini made his Test debut instead of the injured Umesh Yadav.
