Mumbai batsmen Sarfraz Khan In excellent form in this year’s Ranji Trophy, which has maintained its impressive record in India’s domestic first class tournament. Sarfraz had scored 165, 63, 48 and 275 in the last three league matches of this year’s Ranji Trophy and scored 153 in Mumbai’s quarter-final win over Uttarakhand. Last season, he scored 928 runs in the Ranji Trophy and is proud of his first class average of 80.42. He also has an impressive record of converting every first-class century into a score of 150 or more.

Dilip Vengsarkar, who was part of the 1983 World Cup winning team and former chief selector of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), said the 24-year-old should be part of the Indian team.

“He should have played for India at that time. He has scored tons every time (in Ranji Trophy). And if the selectors still can’t believe it, I would be really surprised.” ویAngsarkar told Khaleej Times.

“What else can he do to get into the Indian squad? Every year, he has scored over 800 runs for Mumbai,” he said.

He also put aside questions about the batsman’s fitness, citing his ability to play big knockouts.

Vengsarkar said, “I have seen him since he was 12 years old. He is a street smart cricketer. He is always hungry for success. He is very fit and most importantly he can play long innings. “


He also said that Sarfraz would be a big boost for the Indian middle order as he could improve the scoreboard and keep ticking.

The Indian batsman said, “He is a reformer. And you need someone to speed up the scoring. A batsman like him helps the team because he keeps the scoreboard moving all the time.” The Indian batsman said.
