Mohammad Siraj could not hold back his tears as he stood with his India teammates for the national anthems ahead of the 3rd Test against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Thursday. Playing only his second Test, after playing a good hand in India's win at the MCG in the 2nd Test, Siraj, who lost his father back home while he was on tour and decided not to fly back home, was drafted into the team after Mohammad Shami had fractured his forearm in the first Test.

Siraj was visibly emotional and got teary-eyed during India's national anthem. Watch the video here:

Siraj had claimed five wickets in the 2nd Test (2/40 and 3/37) and become the first Indian debutant to claim five or more wickets in a match after Mohammad Shami's nine in 2013 vs West Indies. Siraj also provided India with the perfect start to the third Test removing a returning David Warner for 5. Warner went for a wild swipe at a wide delivery outside off and was caught at slips by Cheteshwar Pujara.
