“They claim you are nothing and should drive an auto…” – Mohammed Siraj opens up on internet outrage

Being a cricketer is not that easy and he needs to deal with all things and situations, even if he is going through the worst phase of his career. Every cricketer must have gone through ups and downs.

The fact is that the fans laud cricketers for their impeccable performances. At the same time, the very same cricketers get criticized for their off days. One should remember that players don’t score well in all games.

Meanwhile, RCB paceman, Mohammed Siraj opened up on the internet outrage he faced during his journey. His path to becoming an Indian pacer was not that easy but he got the necessary backing from the team management.


Mohammed Siraj got better over time as he picked up lessons on the go. Today, he is a regular feature of the Indian cricket team across all three formats of the game.

Mohammed Siraj opens up on internet outrage

During a chat with the RCB podcast, the right-arm pacer opened up on the severe trolls he faced during his cricketing career. Speaking on the same lines, he said that it is easy to write abuses.

However, at the same time, some people simply abused the cricketer without even knowing his struggles. Siraj further added that these are the messages that kill the motivation.


Siraj recalled that he was abused for no reason at all. He added that one day the netizens called him the future of India and the other day, they claim that the paceman is nothing and that he should drive an auto.

Despite all such abuses and online trolls, Siraj keeps defying the odds and challenges. The 29-year-old has played as many as 66 games for Royal Challengers Bangalore wherein he took 60 wickets. He registered his career-best bowling figures of 4/32 and maintained an economy rate of 8.71.
