Mohammed Siraj’s Emotional Note For ‘Superhero’ Virat Kohli Leaves Fans Teary-Eyed

Virat Kohli’s approach as a leader was simple, he played to win at all costs but played the game fair and square.  

It was under his leadership that India became a force even in overseas conditions in Tests and a big reason for that was the fast-bowlers that found their mojo in the longest format of the game. 

Young seamers like Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj and Shardul Thakur all excelled under Kohli’s captaincy in Test cricket and even experienced guys like Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav gave credit to the 33-year-old for giving them the freedom to express themselves on the field.

Siraj, who made his debut under Kohli, penned an emotional note for his skipper after Kohli announced that he has stepped down as the captain of the Test side.

Siraj called Kohli his superhero and thanked the prolific batter for believing in him and entrusting him to do well at the international circuit.

Not everyone is as lucky as me to be blessed with a elder brother like you. Thank you so much for coming into my life and standing by my side through thick and thin. I hope you get all that you truly deserve. Happy Birthday king @imVkohli pic.twitter.com/pTn8NBZrHh

“To my superhero, I cannot be thankful enough for the support and the encouragement that I got from you. You have always been my great brother. Thank you for trusting me and believing in me for all these years. For seeing the great at my worst. You will be always be my captain King Kohli,” Siraj wrote on Instagram.

Siraj’s choice of words spoke about the kind of bond Kohli shares with his teammates and whoever thinks otherwise needs to clearly look elsewhere for controversies.

Fans too were in awe of the camaraderie between Siraj and Kohli and they simply couldn’t hold back their emotions.

Siraj got injured in the recently-concluded Test series in South Africa and missed the third and final match which India lost by seven wickets. 

A glimpse of Kohli and Siraj’s bond was visible in the second Test as well when Virat had to miss the game due to a back spasm, but the pacer was in the ears of the Proteas, warning them that King Kohli will be back for the series decider. 

While we may not see Kohli calling the shots in international cricket, he is expected to play a key role within the leadership group across formats.
