Sharma reminisced about a similar scenario earlier in January 2023 when Siraj displayed his prowess against Sri Lanka in Trivandrum. On that occasion, Siraj had taken four wickets and bowled an extended spell, illustrating his relentless commitment to the team's cause.

"That's the call. I remember, he was in a similar situation against Sri Lanka in Trivandrum. He had taken 4 wickets and he had bowled some 8-9 overs on the trot, I think," Sharma further added.

The Art of Swing and Heroic Contributions:

Rohit Sharma lauded Siraj for generating remarkable swing, setting him apart from his bowling compatriots. He also highlighted the squad's ability to produce different heroes when needed most. In the Asia Cup final, it was undoubtedly Mohammed Siraj's day to shine.

"I was surprised with the pitch. I can't talk about how they batted and all that. I can only talk about how we bowled. Siraj obviously got the ball to move a bit more than the other guys. We will find different heroes stand up and well all complement him. It was Siraj's day," Rohit concluded.

As India rejoices in their Asia Cup triumph, the backstage narrative of Siraj's incredible spell adds a layer of intrigue. With the ODI World Cup looming, managing the team's key resources is paramount, underscoring Rohit Sharma's pivotal role as captain.
