IND vs AUS: Netizens fume at BCCI for not picking Sarfaraz Khan in the Test squad


The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), on Friday, announced the squad for the upcoming home Test series against Australia. The apex board named the squad for the first two matches of the four-Tests Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

India’s latest batting sensation Suryakumar Yadav and explosive wicketkeeper-batter Ishan Kishan both got the Test call-ups. However, Sarfaraz Khan, who has been performing extraordinarily well in the domestic circuit, was ignored again.

Notably, Sarfaraz is a prolific run-scorer in India’s domestic cricket and has been banging on the selection doors for quite some time. In the 2021-22 edition of the Ranji Trophy, the right-handed batter amassed a jaw-dropping 982 runs at an outstanding average of 122.75 with four centuries, two fifties and a top score of 275.

Even in the ongoing edition of the prestigious tournament, Sarfaraz has scored 431 runs at an impressive average of 107.75 and a strike-rate of 70.54 with the help of two hundreds, and one half-century.

Since his debut in 2014, Sarfaraz has notched 3380 runs in 36 first-class matches at an average of 80.47, including 12 tons and nine fifties. Despite all the impressive numbers, the 25-year-old was not picked for the Test squad, which angered the fans on social media. From experts to regular followers of Indian cricket, everyone expressed their disappointment at BCCI selectors for ignoring Sarfaraz.

Famous broadcaster and popularly known as the voice of Indian cricket, Harsha Bhogle, reckoned Sarfaraz has done everything to get picked by the selectors.

“Very hard on Sarfaraz Khan who has literally broken the door down in first class cricket. You can’t do more than he has,” tweeted Bhogle.

Former India cricketer Dodda Ganesh said he couldn’t understand what else should Sarfaraz do to get picked in the red-ball squad of the national team.

“Spare a thought for Sarfaraz khan. I don’t understand what else he needs to do to get into the test team,” wrote Ganesh on Twitter.
