Virat Kohli and some other Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) players visited young fast bowler Mohammed Siraj’s house ahead of their must-win clash against Sunrisers Hyderabad, in Hyderabad.
Virat Kohli, as we all know, is one of the most loved and respected cricketers in the world and he is widely regarded as a legend of modern-day cricket. In his illustrious career, which is expected to last at least 8 more years, Virat has broken many records and established himself as a legend of the game.
His achievements in One Day International (ODI) cricket have often drawn comparisons with his idol and the greatest batsman in cricket history, Sachin Tendulkar. In fact, many cricket fans and pundits believe that Virat will be able to better Sachin’s record in ODI cricket by the time he decides to hang his boots.
Coming back to Virat and other RCB players’ Hyderabadi treat at Siraj’s place, it was a great moment for the the young fast bowler to host his favourite cricketer and national captain.
Virat Kohli, Mandeep Singh, Parthiv Patel and others had biryani and other Hyderabadi dished and also watched the match between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders at Mohammed Siraj’s house.
Mohammed Siraj comes from a very humble background as his father was an auto rickshaw driver and his family used to live in a small two-room house in the narrow lanes of Khaja Nagar in Banjara Hills before moving in to a new house in Towli Chowki last year. His family and close friends were very happy to host his RCB teammates, specially Virat Kohli, who is the pride of Indian cricket.
After the dinner, Mohammed Siraj posted a picture of his family members with Virat Kohli and Yuzvendra Chahal and wrote: “ALHUMDULILLAH!!!
It was an honour for me and my Family to welcome you all
Thanks a lot for taking out your precious time and joining us at place for dinner
It really means a lot.”
