Speaking recently on the RCB Podcast, he opened up about the first thing he did after getting selected in the Indian Premier League.“First thing I bought was iPhone 7 Plus, then bought a second-hand car, Corolla. Car is important because IPL players need to have a car. For how long could I have pushed a Platina, but I did not know how to drive. Then I asked my uncle’s son to drive me since he knew how to drive,” he said.

He also revealed that his car did not have air conditioning so he had put the windows down and the public would start waving. “Once we went to a function and realized that Corolla doesn’t even have air conditioning, so we had to put the glasses of the window down. And the public started waving Siraj, Siraj !. We could not even raise the glasses as it was so hot. Then next year, I bought a Mercedes”, he added.

Siraj has so far featured in 50 IPL matches, taking 50 wickets. He will be a crucial cog for IPL 2022. Along with Siraj, RCB has also retained ex-captain Virat Kohli and all-rounder Glenn Maxwell.
