Should Sarfaraz Khan get an India call-up? He’s in the form of his life & scored consistently for 2 seasons. Whatever he can do he has done. The ball is now in the selection committee’s court.

After 24 first class games, Sarfaraz Khan is averaging 81 and counting. Has hit 8 hundreds, latest in the Ranji final. It’s highest FC average since Sir Don Bradman for someone with over 2000 runs. If that’s not good enough to get an India call up, tell me what is! #RanjiFinal
