- Sarfaraz Khan was not on the test team for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy
- Right-handed batsmen average over 80 in first-class cricket
- Sarfaraz reaches 2nd century in ongoing Ranji Trophy season
The right-handed batsman continued his dream run in domestic cricket and was hoping for his first call-up to the Border Gavascar Trophy. This time, the non-selection hurt him and Sarfaraz couldn’t sleep after the team was announced.
“Everywhere I go I hear rumors that he will soon be playing for the India national team. There are thousands of messages on social media talking about my exclusion. The day after the selection I came from Assam to Delhi and I couldn’t sleep all night, why am I not there? “I never give up practicing, I don’t get depressed. Don’t worry, I keep trying,” Surfaraz told the Indian Express.
Sarfaraz has been enjoying a dream run since returning to the Mumbai circuit. The former India U-19 hitter is averaging 134.64 in his 2289 runs since 2019. Not to forget, Redball has averaged 80.47 for his 3380 runs in cricket, which puts him only behind Bradman in averages.
The 26-year-old will next face Delhi. The selectors have only named teams for his matches in the first two tests, so Sarfaraz could join the teams for his final two matches if he performs well in the upcoming matches. He celebrated his second century in the running lunge his trophy his season.
