Indian cricketer Sarfaraz Khan, known for his consistent performances in the domestic cricket circuit, has been ignored by the selectors for India’s tour of West Indies. Despite his impressive track record, Sarfaraz has not been given a chance to represent the national team. In response to the snub, Sarfaraz shared a picture on Instagram, depicting cricket nets, accompanied by the motivational song “Lakshya” from the Bollywood movie starring Hrithik Roshan.
The Struggles of Domestic Cricketers in Team Selection
Sarfaraz Khan’s exclusion highlights the challenges faced by domestic cricketers in securing a spot in the Indian national team. Throughout history, numerous players have consistently performed well in domestic cricket but have failed to receive a call-up for the national squad. Some players have been selected but have not been given the opportunity to represent India in international matches. Mumbai’s Suryakumar Yadav is a prime example of a cricketer who had to wait patiently for his chance to play for the national team, despite his impressive performances in various tournaments.
Sarfaraz Khan’s Snub and Determination
Despite scoring heavily in domestic cricket in recent years, Sarfaraz Khan has been unable to impress the selectors and secure a place in the Indian squad for the West Indies tour. Even with the possibility of accommodating fresh faces, the selectors have overlooked him once again. However, Sarfaraz remains undeterred and has chosen to focus on his goals. Through his Instagram story, he shared a picture of cricket nets, symbolizing his dedication to the sport. The image was accompanied by the motivational song “Lakshya,” indicating his determination to work hard and strive for success.
Changes in the Indian Squad for the West Indies Tour
In the latest squad selection for the West Indies tour, the selectors have dropped Cheteshwar Pujara from the team and given Mohammed Shami a rest. Umesh Yadav has also been excluded from the squad. On the other hand, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Mukesh Kumar have received national call-ups, while Navdeep Saini has been included in the side.
