In a heartwarming homecoming, local star Mohammed Siraj was lavishly praised and honoured by Telangana Chief Minister A. Revanth Reddy after India clinched the T20 World Cup, ending a dry spell of 11 years without an ICC trophy.

Mohammed Siraj, who hails from Hyderabad, was the solitary player from Telangana on a squad that brought the coveted title back to Indian shores.

He was felicitated in a grand ceremony attended by political and sports icons, including former Indian captain Mohammed Azharuddin and state ministers Komatireddy Venkat Reddy and Ponguleti Srinivas Reddy. The fast bowler also presented the Chief Minister with a Team India jersey.

Moreover, the CM's office later announced that Siraj would be awarded a house and a government job in recognition of his contributions to Indian’s win in T20 World Cup 2024.

Siraj's journey from local cricket pitches to global stadiums has been nothing short of a fairy tale. His crucial role in the World Cup saw him play three matches and bag one wicket. 

India secured a historic victory over South Africa by a narrow margin of seven runs in the final held in Barbados to bring the trophy home after 17 years.

The festivities in Hyderabad began last Friday when Siraj received a hero's welcome. His recent visit to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and participation in the team's victory parade in Mumbai have made this local recognition sweeter for the pacer.

As the festivities wind down, Siraj’s focus will soon shift back to the pitch, where new challenges await. But for now, he remains Hyderabad's cherished son, basking in the glory of a dream realized and a world conquered.
