New Delhi. The BCCI has announced the team for the two Tests of the Border Gavaskar Trophy between India and Australia. In which many players were given a chance. But the topic of discussion remains Sarfaraz Khan, whose bat is continuously speaking in first class cricket. The records of this player in first class cricket are such that India’s legends Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli have also been left behind. Fans have also fiercely criticized the BCCI on social media.
The series against Australia will start on 9 February. T20 star batsman Suryakumar Yadav has been included in the Test team for the first time. At the same time, young batsman Ishaan Kishan, who scored a double century in ODIs, has also been included in this team.
