Sarfaraz Khan hits third century of Ranji Trophy 2022-23 – SBB Times


Sarfaraz Khan smashed his third hundred of the ongoing Ranji Trophy 2022-23 season during Mumbai’s Round 6 match against Delhi at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Tuesday.

Sarfaraz reached the three-digit mark off 135 balls with a single off Yogesh Sharma. The right-hander had scored 162 against Tamil Nadu earlier this month and an unbeaten 126 versus Hyderabad in December last year.

The 25-year-old was the leading run-scorer during the last Ranji Trophy season, amassing 982 runs at an average of 122.75 in Mumbai’s run to the final. He struck four hundreds and two half-centuries in that season and had a top score of 275 against Saurashtra.

The Mumbai batter has had a dream run in domestic First-Class cricket since the Ranji Trophy 2019-20 season, when he plundered 928 runs and averaged 154.66 to emerge as the tournament’s fifth-highest run-getter.

Sarfaraz boasts of the second-highest average in First-Class cricket history. He averages a whopping 80.47 in 36 matches, second only to the legendary Sir Don Bradman, who averaged 95.14 in 234 games.

Despite his incredible returns in domestic cricket, an India call-up has eluded Sarfaraz, leading to several former cricketers and fans questioning his non-selection.
