After a long wait, promising batsman Sarfaraz Khan was included in the Indian team for the Test series against England. Following consistent performances in domestic cricket, Sarfaraz Khan also impressed in international cricket. In his debut, he scored two half centuries in the third Test against England.

Meanwhile, former India skipper Sourav Ganguly has been impressed with Sarfaraz’s performance. As per the former southpaw, Sarfaraz’s game is more suited to red-ball cricket.

Ganguly expressed his pleasure to see Sarfaraz being rewarded for his years of toil in India’s premiere First Class competition.

“Sarfaraz is more of a five-day player. His game is more suited for that. The amount of runs he scored in domestic cricket is phenomenal. And as they say if you score runs in first class cricket it doesn’t go to waste and that’s what happened to Sarfaraz,” said Ganguly during a recent interaction.

Notably, Sarfaraz has scored 4056 runs in 47 First Class matches at an average of 68.74 while smashing 14 hundreds and 13 half-centuries. In Rajkot Test, Sarafarz scored 62 runs in the first innings and followed it up with a 68 in the second innings to help India script a convincing win against England.
