New Delhi/UNI: Team India fast bowler Mohammed Siraj lost his father on Friday after a brief illness.

"The fast bowler has decided to stay with the Indian contingent and continue performing his national duties. The BCCI shares his grief and will be supportive of Siraj in this extremely challenging phase," the statement further added.
