Ashwin gave a class to the selectors … ‘He did not break the doors of selection, but still …’

New Delhi, Spinner Ravichandran Ashwin believes that Sarfaraz Khan, who is trying to break into Team India despite a disastrous run of form in domestic cricket, has done everything a player can do. Usually players break doors to make space but Sarfaraz has burnt the doors for selection. Ashwin also targeted the selectors for not giving Sarfaraz Khan a place in Team India without naming him.

Ravichandran Ashwin said on his YouTube channel, “There has already been a lot of talk about Sarfaraz Khan. Where do I start? Let me tell you that this batter is not caring about his selection. He scored 900 plus runs in Ranji Trophy 2019-20. In 2020-21, he scored even more runs. Even in this season, he has scored more than 600 runs so far.

He said, “In the last three years, his batting average has been more than 100. His strike rate is also good. Sarfaraz has not only broken the selection doors but also burnt them. Unfortunately, he is not able to get his selection in Team India. Despite not being selected, he performed brilliantly against Delhi.

Please tell that Ashwin is not the first Indian cricketer to praise Sarfaraz. Many cricket veterans have advocated giving him a chance in Team India as soon as possible. Rishabh Pant has been out of international cricket for an indefinite period after being a victim of a road accident. In such a situation, there was a demand that Sarfaraz should be selected in the India-Australia Test series as a wicket-keeper batsman. Although this could not happen.

If we look at Sarfaraz’s first class career, he is batting at an average of 79.65 in 54 innings of 37 matches. During this, 3,505 runs came from his bat. He has also scored 13 centuries and 9 half-centuries in his domestic cricket career. Sarfaraz’s career also includes a triple century.
