Sarfaraz Khan was once again ignored by the selectors
He was not named in the squad announced for the first 2 Tests against Australia.
Batter’s pain, said- what else should I do for selection

New Delhi. Wherever I go, all I hear is that I will play for India soon. But, despite scoring runs continuously, every time I get disappointed for not getting my name during the selection of Team India. This is the pain of Sarfaraz Khan. In the last 1 year, this Mumbai batsman scored such a pile of runs in domestic cricket that he was even called the Bradman of India. But when it came to selection in Team India, he might not have lived up to the standards of the selectors.

Recently, when Team India was announced for the first 2 Tests against Australia, Sarfaraz was hopeful that this time his number would come. But this did not happen. His old partner and friend Suryakumar Yadav got a place in the Test team and once again Sarfaraz was disappointed and this time his pain also erupted.

Sarfaraz Khan’s disappointment is also justified. Since 2019, the Mumbai batsman has scored 2289 runs in 22 innings at an average of 134.64 with nine centuries, five half-centuries, two double centuries and one triple century. This is the reason why people call him ‘Bradman of India’. Despite this performance, if he does not get a chance, then any player will be disappointed.

I didn’t sleep the whole night after team selection: Sarfaraz
In a conversation with Indian Express after Team India’s selection, Sarfaraz expressed his pain at being ignored by the selectors. He said, ‘The next day after the team selection, I came to Delhi from Assam (after the Ranji Trophy match) and could not sleep the whole night. I kept asking myself why am I not there (in the squad). But, after talking to my father, I am feeling fine.

‘My number will also come’
Sarfaraz further said that I am not going to leave practice. I will not go into depression. I will keep trying. However, he admitted that somewhere he also feels bad. Because he is also a human being, not a machine. Sarfaraz said, ‘I was completely broken. It is natural for anyone, especially after scoring so many runs. I am also a human, not a machine. I too have feelings. I spoke to my father and he came to Delhi. We practiced in Delhi.

This right-handed batsman believes that my day will also come and I will play for India. He said that in the beginning he used to talk about joining the Mumbai team and now there is talk at home about making a place in Team India, which is enough to tell that he is moving forward.

what else should i do to get selected in team india
Was India A performance behind not being selected in Team India? or fitness. In response to this question, Sarfaraz said, what else should I do to get selected in Team India. After batting for 2 days in Ranji Trophy, fielding for the next two days. Passed the yo-yo test as well. If India-A’s performance is the criteria for selection, then how did Prithvi Shaw find a place in the team for the T20 series against New Zealand? While he did not play matches for India-A. In the past, selectors have picked special players in Team India even without India-A performances.
