India’s young batsman Sarfaraz Khan is in excellent form at the moment. This right-handed batsman has been continuously running on runs. From Ranji Trophy to Duleep Trophy and now Irani Trophy, Sarfaraz has shown the power of his bat in all these tournaments.
Sarfaraz is playing in the Irani Trophy from Rest of India. This team is facing Saurashtra, who have been the 2019 Ranji Trophy champions. In this match, Saurashtra’s batsmen failed completely and the entire team was all out for 98 runs. Sarfaraz alone scored more runs than the entire team of Saurashtra.
took over the team
What happened to Saurashtra was also visible to the Rest of India. He lost his three wickets for just 18 runs. Abhimanyu Easwaran was out without opening the account. Mayank Agarwal went on after scoring 11 runs. Yash Dhul also could not go beyond five runs. At such a time, Sarfaraz stepped on the field and, along with Hanuma Vihari, set foot on the wicket and scored a century. He completed the century in this match in the 92nd balls.
constantly doing amazing
Sarfaraz’s superb form continues from 2019. Since then he has been consistently scoring runs in domestic cricket. In the last 24 innings, he has scored centuries in nine and half-centuries in five. During this his highest score has been 301. Sarfaraz scored a century in the final of Ranji Trophy this year while playing for Mumbai. After this, in the final of the Duleep Trophy, his bat also scored a century. Once again this young batsman has scored a century in the Irani Trophy.
Vihari also played a brilliant innings
Rest of India got a lot of relief from Sarfaraz’s bat. The team recovered on the strength of his innings, but Sarfaraz alone did not contribute in this. Rather, Hanuma Vihari, part of India’s Test team and the captain of Rest of India, also supported him well. Vihari has scored a brilliant half-century.
Three bowlers wrapped up Saurashtra
Earlier, Saurashtra batted first at home. But could not score big. Only three batsmen of the team could reach the double figures. Dharmendrasinh Jadeja scored the most runs for the team. He scored 28 runs. Arpit Vasavada played an innings of 22 runs. Three bowlers from Rest of India together dealt with Saurashtra’s batting. Mukesh Kumar took four wickets. Umran Malik and Kuldeep Sen got three wickets each.
