Talking to Sports Tak, the 25-year-old batsman said, “I am very happy. Sir Don Bradman’s barbary can never be done but I am very happy that I am around his record. What is the record.. Kabhi banta”. Sometimes it breaks. Sometimes the average is good. Sometimes it also comes down one day or the other. I am just trying that as long as good performance is happening, keep performing well.
Significantly, Sarfaraz is the ninth highest run-scorer in the current Ranji Trophy season. He has scored 556 runs in six matches at an average of 111.20, including three centuries and one half-century.
