Sarfaraz Khan, a domestic and Mumbai cricketer, is expected to reap the rewards of his phenomenal run in the Ranji Trophy in the last two seasons, according to reliable sources.The 24-year-old, who cracked 134 on Day Two of the Ranji Trophy final against Madhya Pradesh at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, will be selected for the two-match Test series against Bangladesh in November.It was his fourth century of the Ranji season, with 937 runs in six games @133.85, four hundred, and two fifties.Chetan Bist is the next-best man for the Ranji Trophy, scoring 623 runs for Nagaland.In a Ranji season, only two batsmen have scored 900-plus runs, and two of them were former India batsmen who were domestic stalwarts, Ajay Sharma and Wasim Jaffer.He is impossible to miss now.His performances demonstrate his immense stamina, putting pressure on others in the Indian team.When the selectors select the Indian team for the Bangladesh Test series, he will be a certainty. Sunil Joshi, the national selector and former India left-arm spinner, had a lengthy chat with Sarfaraz after the game, with another selector, Harvinder Singh, joining in.This is the first time I spoke with the selectors.After speaking with Joshi and Harvinder sir, I felt good.Despite Chandu sir (MP coach Chandrakant Pandit) blocking my sweep shot, they said I had patience and didnt take that shot, was taking singles, and didn't come under pressure. He is closer to a Test appearance than ever before, but the batsman said he is focusing on what he's doing by scoring tonnes of runs.I'm hard at work on Team Indias selection.My only goal is to score runs.Everybody has hopes. Soon after he reached his century, the Mumbaikar slapped his thigh and pointed his index right finger toward the sky, performing the thappi, a signature feature of recently slain Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala.This was for Moosewala.Sarfaraz said later that I love his songs, and that I and Hardik Tamore (keeper) most closely listen to them.However, his huge celebration after achieving yet another three-figure mark didn't end there. His euphoria as he scored a century in the Ranji Trophy final was fueled by his accomplishment.When I was a young child, the only thing I wanted to do was to wear the Mumbai jersey and score a hundred.When I realized that I had a dream, I wanted to score a hundred in a Ranji Trophy final when the team is in a precarious position.After the hundred, I was overcome with emotion, he said.
