BCCI Selector Finally Speaks Out Regarding Sarfaraz Khan’s absence

Sarfaraz Khan

Safaraz Khan‘s situation has been puzzling given he is currently arguably the most effective batter in domestic cricket. Despite his unrelenting batsmanship, Sarfaraz is still too far away from being included in India’s Test team to be considered for a position.

Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav were chosen for India’s side for the first two Test matches against Australia, but the ‘run-machine’ Sarfaraz was passed over. A Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) selector has spoken out on the topic as the Indian cricketing community continues to speculate as to the cause of the batter’s absence.

Sridharan Sharath, the national selector, brought up Sarfaraz’s absence when asked about the Indian batting lineup. Sharath praised both the younger talents and veterans in the current squad, including Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Cheteshwar Pujara. “Still a capable match-winner, Kohli. Cheteshwar Pujara improves batting steadiness. Rohit Sharma is a fantastic player and a great leader. Shreyas Iyer has remained reliable. K.L. Rahul and Shubhman Gill had genuine talent “he said.

When questioned about Sarfaraz, Sharat attributed the young batter’s removal to “composition and balance. “Without a doubt, he is on our radar. He will eventually receive what is owed him. We must take into account factors like composition and balance when choosing the team “he said.

The team for the first two Tests against Australia has only been made public by the selection committee. The team for the final two games will be chosen as soon as possible. Sarfaraz may not have been selected for the first two of games, but he may receive a chance in the series’ final games.
