The first thing, I bought was an iPhone 7+, Then I bought a second-hand car – Mohammed Siraj
The 27-year-old said that the first thing he bought after getting picked in IPL was iPhone 7+ and then he bought a second-hand car as well.
“First thing, I bought was iPhone 7+. Then I bought a second-hand car, Corolla. Car is important. IPL players need to have a car. For how long do I push around a Platina? But I didn’t know how to drive. My uncle’s son knew to drive so I called him every time I wanted to go out,” said Siraj while speaking in RCB’s podcast to Danish Sait.

During the same conversation, Siraj also revealed that his second-hand car didn’t have an AC so he used to keep the windows open and fans used to cheer when they saw him. Also, the following year, he got a Mercedes for himself.
