Not having him in the Test Team despite 3 blockbuster domestic seasons is not only unfair on Sarfaraz Khan, but it’s an abuse to domestic cricket, almost as if this platform doesn’t matter. And he is FIT to score those runs. As far as body weight goes, there are many with more kgs https://t.co/kenO5uOlSp

Sharing the video of Sarfaraz’s century, Venkatesh Prasad said, ‘Despite playing three consecutive blockbuster domestic seasons… Sarfaraz Khan’s absence from the Indian Test team is not only unfair to him, it is an abuse of domestic cricket. This platform seems to make no sense at all. He is fit to run. As for the weight, many other players are playing internationally with this weight.
Sarfaraz Khan was the top scorer from Mumbai. He scored 125 runs off 155 balls with 16 fours and four sixes. It is noteworthy that no other batsman could reach the score of 50 runs except him. Prithvi Shah was the second highest scorer with 40 runs.
