IND vs AUS Test: Sarfaraz Khan India Test Team- Calls for Sarfaraz Khan’s selection in Team India is growing louder day by day. The Mumbai batsman continues to pile runs in domestic cricket but the selectors continue to ignore his efforts. Several former cricketers are left unimpressed by the selection committee’s decision to snub the talented batsman. Follow India vs Australia LIVE Updates with InsideSport.IN.

“If you are looking for only slim and trim guys, then you might as well go to a fashion show. Pick some models and then give them a bat and ball in their hand and then include them. You have cricketers in all shapes and sizes. Don’t go by the size, but go by the runs and the wickets,” Sunil Gavaskar told India Today.

IND vs AUS: Former India pacer Venkatesh Prasad takes a dig at Chetan Sharma led selection committee for Sarfaraz Khan omission, says ‘There are many with more kgs’ – Check out

Sunil Gavaskar is the latest to lash out at BCCI Selection Committee for ignoring Sarfaraz Khan. Earlier, former India pacer Venkatesh Prasad and Irfan Pathan showed support to Sarfaraz Khan.

Sarfaraz Khan was ignored for the upcoming high-profile series featuring India and Australia. The right-handed batsman silenced his doubters with a century in the first innings of the ongoing Ranji Trophy match against Delhi.

Gavaskar expressed his displeasure and said, “He is not staying off the field when he is scoring hundreds, he is back on the field again. All that tells you that the man is fit for cricket”.

Recently Venkatesh Prasad had also lashed out at the Chetan Sharma-led selection committee.

“ Not having him in the Test Team despite 3 blockbuster domestic seasons is not only unfair on Sarfaraz Khan, but it’s an abuse to domestic cricket, almost as if this platform doesn’t matter. And he is FIT to score those runs. As far as body weight goes, there are many with more kgs,” he said.

Despite scoring tons of runs in domestic cricket, Sarfaraz has been out of favour. While one of the reasons is his failure in India A, the other is his fitness. With BCCI mandating Yo-yo test and DEXA test for fitness, cricketers need to pass both to earn a call-up. Sarfaraz apparently hasn’t been managed to clear the mandated yo-yo test.
