New Delhi: Team India’s fast bowler, Mohammed Siraj, who wreaked havoc on the Sri Lankan opening lineup, once again won hearts with his gesture. Siraj dedicated his Player of the Match award to the ground staff and generously donated his cash prize of $5000 to them during the Asia Cup Final in Colombo.
