On Friday (June 23), the BCCI announced the Indian ODI and Test squads for the West Indies tour. Sarfraz Khan, who has dominated domestic cricket, was not given a chance in any of these teams and the selectors were targeted. Fitness and discipline were cited as the reasons for not taking him into the team. However, people associated with Mumbai Cricket have categorically denied this. He has said that there is no truth in these claims. BCCI officials said Sarfaraz needs to improve his fitness and be more disciplined on and off the field.
A big revelation about Sarfaraz
People associated with Mumbai cricket defended Sarfaraz Khan. After scoring a century against Delhi last season, Sarfaraz had an aggressive celebration by pointing towards the dressing room. His actions were called wrong. Such action by Sarfaraz was considered as a jab at one of the selectors present in the stadium at the time.
Was Chetan Sharma really present in the stadium?
A person close to Sarfaraz told the media, “During the Ranji match in Delhi, Sarfaraz’s cheer was for his teammate and coach Amol Mazumdar. Majumdar also took off his hat for Sarfaraz’s century and his enthusiasm. At that time, the selector was not Chetan Sharma, but Salil Ankola. Sarfraz had pulled the team out of a pressure situation and that’s what this celebration was all about.” He further added, “Is it wrong to point towards your dressing room and openly express your happiness?”
The curtain was raised on the Chandrakant Pandit case
It is also said about Sarfaraz that the then Madhya Pradesh coach Chandrakant Pandit was not happy with his behavior last year. However, a person close to Sarfaraz said that Pandit has always admired him. He said, “Chandu sir treats him like a son. They have known Sarfraz since he was 14 years old. He always praises Sarfaraz. They will never be angry with Sarfaraz.”
Those close to Sarfraz want to know why he was ignored in the Indian team despite scoring runs. The Indian team has a fitness standard of 16.5 (Yo Yo Test). He has accomplished this. As far as cricket fitness is concerned, he has often batted for two days followed by fielding for two days.
