Recently, Sarfaraz Khan hogged headlines for several reasons. Firstly, the 25-year-old has dominated the domestic circuit for the past three years but failed to earn an India call-up, which angered the fans, and they demanded justice for the Mumbai star.
Sarfaraz has scored 13 First Class hundreds and averages 80.47 in domestic cricket. Only Don Bradman has a better average than Sarfaraz Khan, which infuriated the viewers more. Questions were raised as to why is the selection committee not including Sarfaraz in the Test side.
Recently, India announced the Test squad for the first two Test matches against Australia and Sarfaraz’s name was once again missing from the list.
Gutted by the omission, Sarfaraz opened up on his feelings and also posted a cryptic message on Instagram, where he posted a visual comparing his and Don Bradman’s graphics.
In the latest development, Sarfaraz has clarified the meaning behind his Instagram story and said that no one can become like Don Bradman.
“There cannot be another Don Bradman. But it makes me happy to know that I am near his record. Otherwise, I do not give a hoot about the records. Someday the average is high, sometimes it falls, my focus is to give a good performance as long as I can.”
“I do not have any goals in life. I aim to score runs in every match.”
Recently, after the snub, Sarfaraz scored another century. He amassed 125(155) against Delhi in the ongoing Ranji Trophy match.
