Former Indian batter Robin Uthappa wants selectors to take notice of in-form Mumbai batter Sarfaraz Khan and “give him a test match gig”. Sarfaraz has been piling up runs in the domestic scene for a while.
“Get this kid a test match gig!! #sarfarazkhan #IraniTrophy@BCCIdomestic,” tweeted Uthappa. Coming to the batter, he ended up among the top run-scorers in Ranji Trophy 2019- 20.
Across six matches in nine innings, Sarfaraz scored 928 runs at an average of 154.66. Three centuries and two half-centuries were scored by the batter, with the best individual score of 301*.
Another blockbuster Ranji season followed for Sarfaraz in 2021-22. He ended this season as the top-scorer in the competition with 982 runs at an average of 122.75. Sarfaraz scored four centuries and two half-centuries. His best individual score was 275. This included a century in the final, which Mumbai lost to Madhya Pradesh.
