Irfan Pathan On Sarfaraz Khan: The Border-Gavaskar series of 4 Test matches will be played between India and Australia. The first match of the series between the two teams will be played in Nagpur from 9 February. At the same time, both the teams have been announced for this series. Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has not got a place in the Indian team. At the same time, veterans are surprised by not getting a place for Mumbai’s young batsman Sarfaraz Khan. However, the BCCI selectors have reposed faith in Suryakumar Yadav.
‘Ranji Trophy should be the basis for selection in the Test team’
Former Indian player Irfan Pathan has expressed surprise over Sarfaraz Khan not getting a place in Team India. While Sarfaraz Khan had a great Ranji Trophy season, Sarfaraz Khan was not selected for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia. Irfan Pathan has expressed his anger by tweeting. He wrote in his tweet that I am surprised by the team selection for the Test series against Australia. Along with this, he further wrote that Ranji Trophy should be made the basis for selection in the Test team.
Ranji Trophy performance should be the first criteria for Test selection!

However, Irfan Pathan is not the only one who has questioned the non-selection of Sarfaraz Khan. Earlier, Akash Chopra, the former opener of the Indian team, has spoken on the inclusion of Sarfaraz Khan in the team. Akash Chopra said that I expected that Sarfaraz Khan would be included in the Test team, but it did not happen. Sarfaraz Khan scored 928 runs at an average of 154.66 in the 2019-20 season of Ranji Trophy. Whereas in the Ranji Trophy season 2021-22, this batsman scored 982 runs at an average of 122.75. Apart from this, in the current season, he has scored 431 runs at an average of 107.75.
