Despite not getting a place in the 17-member Indian squad for the first two Tests of the four-match series against Australia, there is no stopping Sarfaraz Khan. The right-handed batter, who has consistently scored runs in the domestic circuit over the past few years, scored a century for Mumbai against Delhi in the ongoing Ranji Trophy Group B game between the sides at Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi. The star batter hit 125 off 155 balls with the help of 16 fours and four sixes as his knock helped Mumbai post 293 runs before the side was bundled out.
Fans on social media lauded Sarfaraz khan for his century, while some also lashed out at the selection committee for leaving him out for the first two Australia Tests.

Another century for #SarfarazKhan
Can’t ignore him for too long. You have to take notice of how he is dominating domestic cricket at the moment.
