India defeated Australia by 132 runs in the first test.
KL Rahul once again proved to be a flop.
New Delhi. India has started the Border Gavaskar Trophy in a grand manner. Team India took a 1-0 lead in the series by defeating Australia by 132 runs in the first test. But despite the victory of the team, the atmosphere regarding the selection has heated up. The discussion is about the flop show of KL Rahul. After his performance, the issue of Sarfaraz Khan has once again gained air. Now the question is that if there is a wall in front of Sarfaraz then who?
Sarfaraz Khan about whom everyone has known. He is the batsman who is continuously knocking on the door of BCCI due to rain of centuries in first class cricket. He has scored 3505 runs in 37 first class matches with the help of 13 centuries. Not only this, he has also scored two double centuries. Many people gave a befitting response to Sarfaraz not getting a place in the Test team. In his place, Suryakumar Yadav has been given a chance in the Test team. Surya could not do anything special in the first test. At the same time, after the flop show of KL Rahul, the discussion about Sarfaraz has intensified. Former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin and Venkatesh Prasad have also reacted to this issue.
Sarfaraz should have been in the team – Mohammad Azharuddin
Former Team India captain Mohammad Azharuddin said, ‘I do not know what goes on in the mind of the selectors and the captain. Sarfaraz should have been in the team. He has done very well in domestic cricket. I am sure he will be included in the team. Sky has done well in Ranji Trophy. I am eager to see him play in Tests.
