Sarfaraz Should Never Play For India: BCCI Official

The provided information suggests that there are multiple factors contributing to Sarfaraz Khan’s exclusion from the Indian Test squad and his chances of earning a call-up in the near future. According to a BCCI official, Sarfaraz’s struggles against fast bowlers in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and Abhimanyu Easwaran’s lack of runs influenced the decision. It is mentioned that it’s not just about the number of runs scored but also how they are scored.

Additionally, another BCCI official revealed that fitness is a major concern with Sarfaraz. While he has scored over 900 runs in successive seasons, his fitness reportedly falls short of international standards. This suggests that his physical condition is a significant factor in his exclusion.

Furthermore, off-field conduct is mentioned as another factor playing a role in Sarfaraz’s exclusion from the Indian Test squad. The specific details about his off-field conduct are not provided, but it suggests that his behavior or attitude might be affecting his chances.

The officials cited in the report also highlight that Sarfaraz is lower in the pecking order compared to players like Yashasvi Jaiswal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and even Suryakumar Yadav, who have higher chances of being selected for the Test squad. It is mentioned that the opening spot is already occupied, Ajinkya Rahane holds the No. 5 position in the middle order, and Gaikwad serves as a reserve middle-order batsman who can provide backup.

Overall, based on the information provided, it seems that Sarfaraz Khan’s exclusion from the Indian Test squad is influenced by a combination of factors, including struggles against fast bowlers, fitness concerns, off-field conduct, and the presence of other players higher in the pecking order for the available positions.
