Rohit Sharma-led team India won the Asia Cup 2023 title on Sunday. Indian bowlers led from the front by bowling Sri Lanka out for just 50 runs. The real star of the show? None other than Mohammed Siraj. He is the man of the hour, grabbing everyone's attention and admiration. Siraj was on fire, taking an impressive total of 6 wickets, including four wickets in a single over. This extraordinary performance has not only made history but also turned Siraj into a national hero. Even Amul has paid tribute to this cricket sensation by posting a topical on their Instagram page. In Amul's delightful topical, we could find a charming cartoon depiction of Mohammed Siraj. With a whimsical touch, four of his fingers are playfully raised and covered in butter. He stood proudly beside the Asia Cup Trophy, raising a finger to his lips. Amul, with its wordplay magic, cleverly written at the top, "Sabka Sir aaj ooncha hai!" which translates to "Everyone's head is held high today!" And at the bottom, the text read, "Amul casts a magical spell." In their caption, Amul celebrated Siraj's remarkable achievement, dubbing him the "First Indian fast bowler to get four wickets in one over!”

Take a look at Amul's post below:
Amul has always had a knack for celebrating moments of national pride with its creative topicals. Just a few weeks back, when the Indian men's relay team set a new Asian record at the World Athletic Championship, Amul paid tribute. In their topical, we saw an animated representation of all four athletes: Muhammed Anas, Amoj Jacob, Ajmal Variyathodi, and Rajesh Ramesh, sitting on the ground with their thumbs playfully covered with butter. At the top of the poster, the text read, "Really relay proud of you," while at the bottom, they cleverly added, "Amul lap it up!" In their caption, Amul joyfully exclaimed, "#Amul Topical: Celebrating our 4 x 400 meters team at the World Athletics Championships!"
We love how Amul puts its creative twist and celebrates national pride with its topicals.
