Why will Sarfaraz Khan not get an entry in the Test team soon?
What is the plan of the selectors regarding the Indian Test team?

New Delhi. Despite scoring runs in domestic cricket, Sarfaraz Khan was once again ignored for Team India. He was not selected in the Indian team for the Test series against the West Indies. This is not the first time, when Sarfaraz got disappointed. Before this, Bangladesh tour, then Border Gavaskar Trophy, then he did not get a chance even as a stand-by in the final of the World Test Championship and now in the series against West Indies. For this reason, this run machine of domestic cricket was ignored.

Many former veterans including Sunil Gavaskar have questioned this decision of the selection committee. However, a BCCI official has made a shocking disclosure about Sarfaraz Khan not being selected in the Test team. According to the official, Sarfaraz will not get a place in the Indian Test team soon. The officer has also given the reason for this.

Why will Sarfaraz not get a place in the Test team?
In a conversation with the news agency PTI, the BCCI official said about Sarfaraz Khan, “You only think, why was he not in reserve for the World Test Championship? Suryakumar Yadav and Yashasvi Jaiswal were included in the team as reserves after Rituraj Gaikwad withdrew due to marriage. It can be inferred from this that what the selectors think about him? He is not part of the selectors’ planning for the Test team.”

4 players made Sarfaraz’s path difficult
According to the PTI report, Sarfaraz Khan is a middle order batsman. But, he is far behind in the race to make a place in the Indian Test team. Sarfaraz’s path became more difficult after Ajinkya Rahane’s return to the Test team. Because Rituraj Gaikwad has also entered the Test team now. He has also been selected as a reserve batter in the middle order.

Rahane’s entry in the middle order changed the equation
That is, after Rahane, if any batsman gets a chance in the middle order, then it is Rituraj. Apart from these two, there is also Suryakumar Yadav. However, he has not got a place in the Test team selected against the West Indies. He will now play for West Zone in Duleep Trophy. At the same time, there is also Shreyas Iyer in the middle order, who is currently recovering from back surgery and as soon as he is fit, his place in the Test team will be confirmed. In such a situation, 4 players are ahead of Sarfaraz in the race. That is, it will not be easy for Sarfaraz to make a place in the Test team.
