‘Ranji stars usually need 60+ average to break into national team, Sarfaraz Khan way beyond’ – Mumbai batter 50 impresses Twitter

Sarfaraz Khan starred for Mumbai today in the Ranji Trophy quarterfinals against Uttarakhand. The middle-order batter remained not out at the end of day one with 69 off 105 balls, having struck six fours and two sixes in his innings. Mumbai ended the day decidedly ahead on 304-3.

Sarfaraz is the leading run scorer for Mumbai this season, with 623 runs from five innings. He averages an unbelievable 155, and has struck two fifties, two hundreds and one double hundred. His top score of 275 came against Saurashtra earlier in February.

Sarfaraz has accumulated 2099 runs, including six fifties and six hundreds, from 22 first-class innings and averages over 77. His mammoth triple ton, his highest score to date, occurred in the 2019-20 season against Uttar Pradesh.

Sarfaraz’s IPL career began in 2018, when he was picked by the Royal Challengers Bangalore but was released after just one season. He spent three years with the Punjab Kings before being acquired for Delhi Capitals at the mega-auction this year for 20 lakhs.
