Former Indian cricketer Laxman Sivaramakrishnan reckons that Siraj owes his success to bowling coach Bharat Arun.

Mohammed Siraj was sensational during India’s victory in the second Test against England. He took eight wickets in the match as Virat Kohli and his men defeated the rivals by 151 runs.

Former Indian cricketer Laxman Sivaramakrishnan reckons that Siraj owes his success to bowling coach Bharat Arun. It was Arun who identified Siraj when he was associated with the state side of Hyderabad.

Sivaramakrishnan further stated that Siraj has a lot of hunger and Arun has imparted Knowledge to the fast bowler.

“Siraj’s success also has a lot to do with Arun. When he was the coach for Hyderabad for a year or so, he identified Siraj. And to Siraj’s credit, he had the hunger and desire to learn. Arun imparted a lot of knowledge,” said Sivaramakrishnan as quoted by The Hindustan Times.

Siraj has followed whatever Bharat Arun has taught him. “Siraj has just followed him. Some people might doubt it. Be sceptical whether it is the right thing to do or not but Siraj took Arun as his guru and went about doing exactly what he wanted him to do. Arun must have then passed it on to Shastri,” concluded Sivaramakrishnan.
