‘Can you get Virat Kohli out?’: How a ‘yes sir’ to Justin Langer from M Siddharth manifested into dream come true

LSG pacer M Siddharth had confidently said yes sir to coach Justin Langer when he was asked if he could get Virat Kohli out

LSG bowler M Siddharth had a dream come true moment as he got rid of Virat Kohli in the game against RCB in Bengaluru. In a dressing room video shared by LSG on X, head coach Justin Langer recalls how he asked the youngster if he could get the ex-RCB skipper out. At that time, Siddarth confidently answered ‘yes sir’.

Dream come true for Siddharth ft. Virat Kohli

The 25-year-old left-arm spinner sent shivers down the spine of cricketing royalty Virat Kohli, dismissing him for his maiden IPL wicket in a dream debut for Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in IPL 2024.

Bidding War and Dream Debut for M Siddharth

Both Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore recognized Siddharth’s potential, leading to a bidding war. LSG eventually secured his services for a whopping INR 2.4 crore, showcasing their faith in the young spinner. And Siddharth wasted no time repaying that trust, taking down one of cricket’s biggest names in his first IPL match.
