Sarfaraz Khan continues his dominating performance in Domestic League


Sarfaraz Khan is not going to stop before making it to the Indian Test cricket team. The 25-year-old batter was not selected for the team for the first two matches of the Test series against Australia for the Border Gavaskar Trophy. Questions were being raised on the selectors but Sarfaraz came up with another befitting reply by scoring another Ranji Cup Hundred. Currently, Mumbai is clashing with Delhi in the Ranji Cup. In the match being played at Delhi's Arun Jaitley Stadium, Sarfaraz scored a century in a difficult situation on Tuesday.

Sarfaraz Khan scored a century in 135 balls for Mumbai. The right-handed batter, who came out to bat at number 5, scored only one run in the first 20 balls. But after that, he started scoring fast. This is the 13th century of Sarfaraz Khan playing the 37th first-class match. His batting average is above 82 after 53 innings. Among cricketers who have played more than 50 innings in first-class cricket, only Bradman has a better average than Sarfaraz.

Mumbai started its innings in a blistering way. Opener Prithvi Shaw smashed 40 runs in just 35 balls with the help of 9 fours. But between 13 runs, Mumbai lost the wickets of their top-4 batsmen. After this, Sarfaraz Khan along with Prasad Pawar (25) took the team beyond 100 runs. For the sixth wicket, he made a partnership of 144 runs with Shams Mulani (39).

Mumbai team coach Amol Majumdar took off his hat for Sarfaraz Khan after completing his century. Nevertheless, Sarfaraz Khan got stumped after playing a scintillating inning of 125 runs He became the victim of left-arm spinner Yogesh Sharma while trying to play a big shot out of the crease but missed it. He scored 125 runs with the help of 16 fours and 4 sixes.
