If you want slim guys, go to fashion shows; Sunil Gavaskar scolded the selectors for not getting Sarfaraz a place
Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar appeared fuming at Sarfaraz Khan being ignored from the Test team. Gavaskar said that players should be selected on the basis of their cricketing fitness and form.
Indian team legend Sunil Gavaskar has given his reaction on Sarfaraz Khan being ignored in the Test squad. He said that the selectors should not pick cricketers on the basis of their size and shape, instead looking at their form with bat and ball. He further said that if selectors want slim and trim boys then they should go to fashion show and choose model ho and then give them bat and ball and then induct them.
Sarfaraz has been performing brilliantly for the last few years in domestic cricket and has been playing consistent innings as well. He has scored a total of 2441 runs in the last three seasons but has failed to make it to the Indian Test squad. Recently, the team was announced for the first two Test matches against Australia, in which players like Suryakumar and Ishaan Kishan were included, experts and fans raised questions on ignoring Sarfaraz, who performed brilliantly in domestic cricket. .
Sunil Gavaskar told Sports Today, “At the end of the day, if you are unfit, you will not be able to score a hundred. That’s why cricket fitness is important. I don’t mind the fact that you want the Yo-Yo test, but the Yo-Yo test can’t be the only criteria. You have to make sure that the man is fit for cricket as well. If whoever that man is is fit for cricket, then I don’t think it matters either.

He further said, “He is not going out of the field after scoring a century. He comes to the field again. All this shows that the man is fit for cricket. If you are looking for slim and trim boys then you should go to fashion show and take some models and then give them bat and ball and then join. You have cricketers of all shapes and sizes. Don’t go by size, but choose by looking at runs and wickets.
