What's more, why not? The speedster has handled a Rs 2.6 crore manage the Indian Premier League guarding champions Sunrisers Hyderabad for the up and coming tenth season, on account of a splendid top of the line season that saw him get India An and Rest of India call-ups.

"Today, I remember my first salary playing cricket. It was a club match and my maternal uncle was the chief of the group. I got 9 wickets for 20 odd keeps running in that 25-over diversion. My uncle was so glad he gave me Rs 500 as a prize. It was an extraordinary feeling. In any case, today when the offer was raised to Rs 2.6 crore, I just went numb," Siraj told PTI amid a collaboration from Hyderabad.

At that point I played Hyderabad U22, Mushtaq Ali, Vijay Hazare and after that Ranji Trophy took after by India A. I have approached slowly and carefully. Next is IPL trailed by senior national group," said Siraj.
