IND vs AUS: “Sarfaraz Khan Has Done Enough To Warrant A Place In The Indian Team”


Young batter Sarfaraz Khan has not been included in the Test squad for the first two matches of the upcoming four-match series against Australia for the Border Gavaskar Trophy (BGT) 2023. Former Indian cricketer Abhinav Mukund feels that Sarfaraz, who has played consistently in the Ranji Trophy over the last three seasons, deserves a place in the Test team.

The 25-year-old has been a prolific run-getter for Mumbai in domestic cricket and scored 2446 runs in the last three editions of the Ranji Trophy. Despite his consistent performances in domestic cricket, he was left out of the Test squad, and fellow Mumbai cricketer Suryakumar Yadav was selected. Shreyas Iyer cemented his place in the middle order with consistent performances.

They Drafted Jaydev Unadkat Into The Team After The Sensational Ranji Trophy – Abhinav Mukund

In an exclusive conversation with News18 Cricket Next, Abhinav Mukund said that Sarfaraz should be given a chance in the Test squad as he has performed well in domestic cricket over the past three years. He cited the example of Jaydev Unadkat, who was drafted into the team after sensational Ranji Trophy performances in the last two or three years.

“I don’t think so. I think Sarfaraz should be there. Let’s keep that point straight. I think Sarfaraz has done enough to warrant a place in the Indian team. But, if you look at Ranji performances not being rewarded in this case, yes. But if you look at Jaydev Unadkat, they drafted him into the team after the sensational Ranji trophy in the last two or three years,” Mukund told News18 CricketNext.

The 25-year-old has scored 556 runs in six matches, including three centuries and one half-century, at an average of 111.20 in the ongoing Ranji Trophy edition. He was the highest run scorer in the 2021–22 Ranji season with 982 runs in just 9 innings at a sublime average of 122.75.
