Test Crickets: Sarfaraz Khan Feels he got cheated- Aakash Chopra



Sarfaraz Khan Feels he got cheated- Aakash Chopra

Sarfaraz Khan Feels he got cheated- Aakash Chopra: Former cricketer and analyst Aakash Chopra believes Sarfaraz Khan should have been picked ahead of fellow Mumbai batter Suryakumar Yadav in the Indian Test squad for the first two matches against Australia.

The BCCI revealed the Indian squad on Friday, January 13. However, Sarfaraz Khan’s absence from the squad resulted in a lot of backlashes.

Sarfaraz Khan has been significant with the bat in domestic cricket. He scored 3380 runs at an average of 80.47 in 37 matches.

Including the highest score of an unbeaten 301 runs. Despite his prolific record in first-class cricket, the right-handed batter hasn’t received a test call-up.

“Sarfaraz’s name is still not there. He feels he got cheated because his name should probably have come. Bumrah is still not there. That’s another news but I am more concerned that Sarfaraz is not there.”

“When you picked Surya, it means a slot had opened up. In my opinion, Sarfaraz should have gotten that chance because Sarfaraz’s first-class average is 80. Apart from him, only Don Bradman has an average of 80 or more in the number of matches he has played.”

“So he has done everything in his power to be in the Indian team. I am a little disappointed, that if you had a chance to select even one guy because both Surya and Sarfaraz don’t come in the XI. Sarfaraz had the right in my opinion. If someone’s domestic season is going so good, you should have rewarded him,” added Aakash Chopra.
