Sarfaraz Khan - The Big Stage Awaits!

Updated: Feb 13, 2023

Sarfaraz Khan has been a familiar name since the year 2015 when he became the youngest player to be picked by an IPL team. He was 17 years old when RCB picked him up in Auction. He has played the 2014 and 2016 editions of the U 19 World Cup and he holds the record for the most 50+ scores in U 19 World Cup, he has 7 50+ scores across two U 19 World Cups. 

He has been piling up runs in the last two domestic seasons. He has been scoring big centuries and currently averages 80+ in first-class cricket which is second only to Sir Don Bradman (minimum 2000 runs).

To be honest, it would only be fair if he is given a chance at the highest level as soon as possible. This is not only because he has been performing consistently and deserves Team India call up but also because since he is in his purple patch, it should come to good use for Team India as well. His performances over the years clearly show that he is a very rare talent. He displayed his unhappiness to the selectors with his aggressive century celebration against Delhi on 17th Jan 2023 after he was not included in the squad for Border Gavaskar Trophy. 

If he can continue his form and consistency, his maiden Team India call-up is not going to be a matter of if, it is only a matter of when. Stay Strong and Keep Performing!
