‘Don’t think Sarfaraz Khan should be playing at this level anymore’ – Twitter wowed by Mumbai batter’s form in Ranji QFs

Sarfaraz Khan is dominating the Ranji Trophy quarterfinal for Mumbai against Uttarakhand. The 24-year-old scored his third 150 plus first-class score this season, hitting 153 off 205 balls on the first two days of the match.

A 267-run partnership between Sarfaraz and Suved Parkar saw Mumbai dominating the first innings. They ended day one confidently on 304-3, with debutant Suved Parkar racking up an impressive maiden fist-class century. Sarfaraz played second fiddle but took charge today, scoring nearly 90 more runs in the first two sessions. He was eventually bowled by left-arm spinner Mayank Mishra.

Sarfaraz Khan hits third 150-plus score for Mumbai in Ranji Trophy 2021-22

Sarfaraz has been in unbelievable form this Ranji season. In just five innings he has scored over 700 runs, and averages nearly 140. His top score this season has been a mammoth 275 against Saurashtra, his third double-century in first-class cricket.

In the 13 innings in Ranji Trophy career, Sarfaraz has scored 2252 runs at an average of 80.52. This is the second highest for a batter in first-class cricket, only behind Sir Don Bradman’s 95.14, considering a minimum of 2000 runs.

Since making his IPL debut in 2018 for the Royal Challengers Bangalore, Sarfaraz hasn’t had a lot of opportunities to prove himself. Cricket Twitter had high praise for his innings, with many wondering when the dominant batter is likely to make his debut in India colours.
