Suryakumar Yadav’s special message for Sarfaraz Khan.© Twitter
Sarfaraz Khan is one of the most talented aspiring cricketers to come through the Mumbai cricket circles. The righthanded batter has shown time and again that he has a calm head on his shoulders and his talent was on display again on the first day of the Irani Cup between Saurashtra and Rest Of India. Sarfaraz came into play when Rest Of India was 18/3 in the 5th over and showed a perfect blend of aggression and caution.
Saurashtra was out for just 98 in the first innings, but Rest Of India also lost quick wickets, and the rebuilding task fell to Sarfaraz and skipper Hanuma Vihari. The duo set an unbeaten score of 187 runs on Day 1 to bring the score to 205/3 and extend the lead to 107. Sarfaraz was unbeaten at 125 while Vihari was 62 at Stumps.
This knock impressed senior pro Suryakumar Yadav, and the right-handed batter shared a photo of him celebrating with Sarfaraz in the TV behind him, writing, “So so proud of you.”
