After his heroics in the Ranji Trophy, there have been a lot of calls of giving a chance to Sarfaraz Khan in the Indian test team as well. According to a report by the Times of India, Sarfaraz Khan is set to be included in the Indian team for the Test series against Bangladesh in November.
“It’s impossible to overlook him now. His performances are speaking about his huge ability and putting pressure on many in the Indian team. He will be a certainty when the selectors pick the Indian team for the Bangladesh Test series. He did well for India A last year in South Arica and he’s an excellent fielder,” a BCCI insider was quoted by TOI.
