‘Sarfaraz Khan is more worthy than Surya’: Controversy after Test team announcement – Sarfaraz Khan

Mumbai – Controversy after the announcement of India’s team for the first two matches of the Test series against Australia. The argument was that young player Sarfaraz Khan, who is playing brilliantly in the Ranji Trophy, has been denied a chance. Former actor Irfan Pathan, commentator Harsha Bhogle and others came forward to criticize Sarfaraz Khan’s ban. Fans took to social media to say that Sarfaraz Khan took a chance on Surya Kumar Yadav as an insult to the Ranji Trophy. The squad for the Test matches against Australia in Nagpur (February 9 to 13) and Delhi (February 17 to 21) has been announced.

Pathan wrote on Twitter that ‘Ranji Trophy performance should be the first criteria for selecting players for the Test team’. Famous commentator Harsha Bhogle also came forward and pointed out that Sarfaraz Khan was not fair. Bhogle’s question is what else should Sarfaras do? “This is a tough decision for Sarfaraz Khan, who is in great form in first-class cricket. No one can do more than what he did’ – pointed out Bhogle.

Supporters point out that the inclusion of Jharkhand player Ishan Kishan in the team in place of wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant, who was seriously injured in the accident, is justified. However, fans are questioning Sarfaraz Khan’s decision to give Suryakumar a chance. Although Surya has previously been included in the Test squad in a substitute role on the tour to England, this is the first time he has been included in the first squad to be announced for the series.

Sarfaraz Khan is in great batting form for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy. Scored 431 runs in five matches including two and a half centuries. Last season, Sarfaraz Khan scored 982 runs at an average of 122.75 from six matches. He scored four centuries in that season. Considering the form, the fans pointed out that Sarfaraz Khan deserves a place in the team over Suryakumar and Ishan Kishan.
