New Delhi, Sep 21: Mohammed Siraj’s remarkable performance in the Asia Cup final has earned him widespread praise on the internet, with one enthusiast appealing to Anand Mahindra to reward the cricketer with an SUV. In a climactic performance in the Asia Cup 2023, Mohammed Siraj demolished Sri Lanka’s batting lineup, leading Team India to a stunning 10-wicket win. He dismissed six Sri Lankan players for just 21 runs in the process. What really stood out was his extraordinary four wickets in a single over, followed by two more wickets in subsequent overs, reducing Sri Lanka to just 50 runs.
The cricket world quickly took to social media to praise Siraj’s extraordinary performance, including prominent businessman Anand Mahindra. Mahindra quoted an ICC tweet expressing amazement at Mohammed Siraj’s bowling ability, describing him as a “superhuman force”.

Mahindra’s tweet quickly went viral and was viewed more than 3.4 million times. A particular reaction from a fan caught the industrialist’s attention. The fan urged Mahindra to gift Mohammed Siraj an SUV, saying, “Sir, please give him an SUV.” Mahindra’s response was positive and reminiscent of his previous generosity.
In 2021, Anand Mahindra had already gifted SUVs to six cricketers in recognition of their outstanding performances during the Test series against Australia. Among the lucky recipients was Mohammed Siraj, who expressed his gratitude and also shared a photo of himself with the gifted vehicle. In response, Siraj tweeted, “I have no words at this moment. There is nothing I can say or do that can adequately express how I feel about your beautiful gift @Mahindra_Thar. For now, I would just like to say thank you very much @AnandMahindra sir.”
