Sarfraz Khan’s name is at the forefront as a batsman who has consistently performed brilliantly in domestic cricket. Sarfaraz has been scoring runs in domestic cricket for the past few seasons. Given his performance, he was hoping to get a chance for the West Indies tour after missing out on the Bangladesh tour and the Border Gavaskar Trophy against Australia. However, the selectors of the Indian team have ignored this talented young player. Sunil Gavaskar is furious with being ignored by the BCCI selectors. He has bombarded the selectors with questions.
What did Gavaskar say?
Speaking to the media, Sunil Gavaskar said, “Sarfaraz Khan has been scoring runs at an average of almost 100 for the last three seasons. What does he have to do to earn a place in the team? He may not get a place in the final eleven, but he should have been selected in the team.”
Speaking further, Gavaskar said, “He must feel that his performance is being appreciated. If not, Ranji Trophy should be stopped. If you are going to get a place in the Test team by doing well in the IPL, then the Ranji Trophy is of no use.”
