He was bought for a whopping INR 2.6 crore in the IPL 2018 auction. Cut to the present, he has become an integral part of the Indian cricket team and has impressed one and all with his terrific performances.

Recently, speaking on the RCB Podcast, Siraj opened up about the first thing he did after getting picked in the Indian Premier League. He said:

“First thing, I bought was iPhone 7+. Then I bought a second-hand car, Corolla. Car is important. IPL players need to have a car. For how long do I push around a Platina? But I didn’t know how to drive. My uncle’s son knew to drive so I called him every time I wanted to go out,”

Mohammed Siraj also revealed that he didn’t have air conditioning in his car so he had put the windows down and the public would start waving. He revealed:

“Once we went to a function and realized that Corolla doesn’t even have air conditioning, so we had to put the glasses of the window down. And the public started waving Siraj, Siraj !. We could not even raise the glasses as it was so hot. Then next year, I bought a Mercedes”

Meanwhile, Siraj is currently sitting beside former RCB captain Virat Kohli in the team’s retained players list ahead of the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League.
