Indian middle-order batsman Sarfaraz Khan is arguably the best middle-order batsman in the Indian domestic scenes right now for long time. But despite his dominance over the last couple of years, he is yet to make his debut.
Sarfaraz Khan has been the topic of discussion among the Indian cricket fans, not just now, for almost 2 or 3 years back. Sarfaraz has a tremendous records in the Indian domestic cricket.
He has achieved all the big milestones in his career while playing for the Mumbai team in the domestic cricket.
Sarfaraz, as of writing this, has a massive average of more than 80 in the domestic multi-day matches. He has so far played 36 first class matches and has scored 3380 runs with an average of 80.5.
Despite his brilliant form and performance, the Indian team selectors have always overlooked him. That has led to many believe that it is because of his body weight.
Recently, former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar said that if the selectors are for slim players only for the Indian team, they must then go for models rather than cricketers. He added that Sarfaraz is ready to play for India. After his statement, Twitter have reacted to the former India captain’s statement.
Sunil Gavaskar said, “Sarfaraz Khan is fit to play cricket. If selectors want slim guys, they should go to a fashion show and select some models. Selection should be based on runs and not size”. (To India Today).— Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) January 20, 2023
Absolutely right imagine same criteria being followed in 90’s and early 20’s then we would have never witnessed greats like Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Inzamam ul Haq, and Chris Gayle.— KhabriBhai (@RealKhabriBhai) January 20, 2023
So is it true that selectors not selecting him because of how he looks ? Heard he cleared yo yo test.. He has top class avg in first class. If not in playing 11, atleast he deserves to be in the squard.— Rakesh | இராக்கேஷ் (@k_rakesh_tamil) January 20, 2023
Totally agree with the Gavaskar’s statement if someone is scoring runs with this kind of consistency then he deserves to play in national side as soon as possible— no name ( naam mein kya rakha hai ) (@Sushant73238728) January 20, 2023
