After surprising everyone with his brilliant performance and the consistency level in the domestic cricket circuit, Mumbai’s Sarfaraz Khan has finally made his entry into the Indian team for th upcoming Bangladesh series.
While Sarfaraz has not been included in the senior team for the Test match series against the Bangla Tigers, but he will be a part of the India A for the two 4-day match series.
Meanwhile, Sarfaraz Khan today took to his social media handle to share a picture of his India Test jersey that has his name and his selected 97 number on the jersey.
Sarfaraz has been consistently doing well in the domestic circuit but it took him a little long to make it to national team. Twitterati that’s why had a poking fun with him and his jersey number.
Hope he performs well to get a chance in the next series for India!— itsnoteasy (@_nomadic_11) November 27, 2022

the story behind him keeping the no 97 is his father’s name is naushad which sounds like nau and saat— Arsh Khan (@ArshKhanTwitty) November 27, 2022
"Could be playing for India right now if his jersey number was 91, but not coz it's 97"- GG— Silly Point (@FarziCricketer) November 27, 2022
Man, this guy is not in the main team is such a bummer. It’s just hard for him as our Test team is mostly rock solid. Especially batting.— Sudhanshu (@sud2rock) November 27, 2022
Reminds me of Yuvraj’s Test career.. https://t.co/1V1Owz29f4
