IND vs AUS: Suryakumar Yadav Had To Wait Long For His Selection- Sarfaraz Khan’s Fresh Salvo To Chetan Sharma Selection Committee. Following the BCCI’s release of India’s 17-member team for the first two Test matches against Australia in the Border-Gavaskar series, cricket fans, pundits, and seasoned players were incensed by Sarfaraz Khan’s absence and questioned Suryakumar Yadav’s rationale for inclusion in the format.
On Sunday, Sarfaraz broke his silence about the selectors’ selection of the Indian batting sensation, sharing a dressing room with Suryakumar from Mumbai’s local matches.
Sarfaraz’s plenty of runs in the Ranji Trophy and Suryakumar’s scarcity of red-ball appearances infuriated the crowd. The 25-year-old scored over 500 runs this season at an average of over 92 runs per game.
In the 2019–20 season, he scored 928 runs at 154.66, 982 runs at 122.75, and 928 runs at 154.66. Contrarily, Suryakumar had not participated in a red-ball match for the previous three years until he made a cameo in a Ranji Trophy match last December and recorded an 80-ball 90.

Journalist Vimal Kimar questioned Sarfaraz about Suryakumar’s selection and whether he found it motivating given how long he had to wait for his India cap. Sarfaraz responded that he and his “buddy” have a strong relationship and that he learns a lot from him.

“Obviously it is (on his selection being inspirational). Suryakumar is a good friend of mine. And we spend a lot of time together when we are in the team together. I get to learn a lot of things from him. He had to wait for a long time but the way he has been playing, he has taken on his experience together, so that makes things easy,” Sarfaraz Khan said.
Last week, Sarfaraz discussed his initial thoughts on the squad news in an interview with Times of India.
“When the team was announced and my name wasn’t there, I was very sad. Anyone in my place in this world would’ve been sad, because I had expected to be picked, but wasn’t (chosen). Yesterday, I was sad the whole day, when we travelled from Guwahati to Delhi. I was thinking about what and why it happened. I was feeling very lonely. I cried too,” Sarfaraz Khan had said.
