Sarfaraz Khan is the talk of the town after he received his maiden Test call-up yesterday. While good wishes have been pouring in for the batter from across the country, a Pakistani batter, Imam-Ul-Haq, also extended his good wishes in a surprise social media post.

Indian domestic cricket run machine Sarfaraz Khan earned his much-awaited due yesterday when BCCI formally announced his addition to India’s revised squad for the second Test against England scheduled to go on floors this week in Visakhapatnam. 

Ravindra Jadeja and KL Rahul were ruled out due to respective injury concerns, and accordingly, Sarfaraz, Washington Sundar and Saurabh Kumar were appointed as immediate replacements.

Meanwhile, the whole nation is celebrating Khan’s call-up as the young batter has been grinding in domestic cricket for several years now. However, despite staggering numbers, Sarfaraz was getting snubbed mainly due to his fitness issues.

Regardless, Khan kept on piling up an insane number of runs, which eventually encouraged the selection committee to award the batter with a deserved promotion. 

Meanwhile, Sarfaraz Khan has now received love from the cross-border nation of Pakistan. Pakistani opening batter Imam-Ul-Haq took to his X platform to congratulate Khan for his maiden Test call-up. He uploaded Sarfaraz’s picture and captioned it, “Congratulations, brother. So Happy for you.”

Interestingly, Pakistani spinner Sajid Khan followed Imam’s cue and posted a similar congratulatory post for Sarfaraz Khan.

Needless to say, pure talent and sheer hard work never go unnoticed. While Khan had to wait ridiculously long for his due, he will now feel added pressure to live up to the expectations. 

But to Sarfaraz’s fortune, the Test is happening on Indian soil, wherein he possesses heaps of experience, which will eventually come in handy. 

That being said, before all this, the Mumbai lad needs to make the cut in the final playing XI first, and the odds of his selection look very bleak for now.
