Cricketer Mohammed Siraj paid tribute to his late father at his grave in Hyderabad on January 21.
His father had passed away while he was in Australia for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
He said, "It was very difficult for me when my father passed away and I was mentally really upset.
But my family supported me and asked me to fulfil his dreams. My fiance and my team also supported me and motivated me throughout." India won the Border-Gavaskar Trophy this year by defeating the home team by 2-1, with Siraj taking a five-wicket haul in the last test match.
