Suryakumar Yadav now gets the chance to represent India in the first two Tests of the Border-Gavaskar series against Australia at home as a result of his T20 triumph. The 17-person squad for the game included the batter. Sarfaraz Khan has attempted several runs on the domestic circuit over the last two seasons, but he has not yet found success. Aakash Chopra, a former cricketer for India, was enraged by the selection committee’s choice to reject Sarfaraz and suggest that Suryakumar was more deserving of the position.

Sarfaraz scored 982 runs at an average of 122.75 during the 2021/22 Ranji Trophy season, with four hundred and two scores of plus fifty. His knock of 275 was his greatest season total. He has accumulated 431 runs at 107.75 with two tonnes and a fifty in the current edition.

“The identity of Sarfaraz is still unknown. He feels unjustly treated since his name should have been called. Bumrah has not yet arrived. But I’m more troubled by Sarfaraz’s absence than by that other development.” Aakash posted this on his YouTube channel.

Due to his recent run-scoring outburst, Sarfaraz’s first-class average has increased to 80.47, giving him the second-best first-class average among all players with at least 50 innings played, behind only Don Bradman (95.14).

“You choosing Surya suggests that a spot become available. I believe Sarfaraz should have been given the opportunity due to his first-class average of 80. Don Bradman, who has played in the most games of anybody, is the only player with an average of at least 80. He has put in a lot of effort to make the Indian squad, therefore Aakash, please. If you had the chance to choose even one player among Surya and Sarfaraz, who are both left out of the starting XI, Sarfaraz should have been picked, in my opinion. You ought to have given someone something if he was having such a prosperous domestic season.”
