Mumbai Mumbai’s star batsman Sarfaraz Khan’s bat is speaking every day. He was not selected in the team for the first two matches of the Test series against Australia. Questions were being raised on the selectors about this that Sarfaraz scored another century. Mumbai is clashing with Delhi in the Ranji Trophy. In the match being played at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium, Sarfaraz scored a century under difficult circumstances. Everyone is praising this performance of Sarfaraz but in spite of this, the curtains lying on the eyes of the BCCI’s selection committee are not opening. People are asking the question that despite Sarfaraz’s excellent form, why is BCCI not including him in the Indian cricket team, what is the reason behind this?
You can get an idea of the form star batsman Sarfaraz Khan is going through from his recent performance. His average is almost equal to that of Sir Don Bradman, the greatest batsman in the world. Sarfaraz Khan scored a century in balls while playing a match against Mumbai. Sarfaraz, who came out to bat at number 5, scored only one run in the first 20 balls. But after that he started scoring fast. This is the 13th century of Sarfaraz Khan playing 37th first class match. His batting average is above 82 after 53 innings. Among cricketers who have played more than 50 innings in first class cricket, only Bradman has a better average than Sarfaraz.
Let us tell you that Mumbai was dominating in this match from the beginning and when the team started faltering after a shaky start, opener Sarfaraz Khan took over the reins and scored another century of his career. After a brisk start, the Mumbai team lost the wickets of their top-4 batsmen in between 13 runs. After this, Sarfaraz Khan along with Prasad Pawar (25) took the team beyond 100 runs. For the sixth wicket, he shared a 144-run partnership with Shams Mulani (39). Despite such a brilliant performance in his first class cricket, it is definitely a shocking thing to read in the eyes of the selectors.
