‘Abbu, Arjun kitna Naseeb wala hai na?’ – Sarfaraz Khan’s father recalls touching story about his son and Arjun Tendulkar


The young Mumbai batting sensation Sarfaraz Khan is currently the talk of the town in the Indian cricket paradigm. The 25-year-old has amazed everyone with his stunned in the last eight appearances in the ongoing edition of the Ranji Trophy 2022-23 of late. Sarfaraz has smashed 551 runs in eight innings of the five last matches he played for Mumbai.

He has scored these runs with an amazing average of 68.87 including three centuries and a half-century to his name. These three centuries also include his amazing knock against Delhi in the tough conditions to rescue Mumbai. Interestingly, Sarfaraz smashed this century against Delhi just after the national selectors overlooked him while picking the squad for the first two of the four-match Test series against Australia.

Recently, his father Naushad Khan was in an exclusive interview with the Indian Express. Mr. Khan opened up an interesting and innocent question from his son Sarfaraz Khan when the latter was a kid. Mr. Naushad recalled the moment when kid Sarfaraz said father about the good luck of Arjun Tendulkar, who is the son of former legendary Indian batter Sachin Tendulkar.

“I am more fortunate than him because my dad gets to spend the whole day with me”

“Abbu, Arjun, kitna naseeb wala haina? He has everything in life, like cars, ipads, etc. But, I am more fortunate than him because my dad gets to spend the whole day with me. Arjun’s father can’t spend enough time with him,” recalled Mr. Naushad innocent kid’s statement who was none other than current-time Indian domestic superstar Sarfaraz Khan.

Just a few days, former legendary Indian skipper and batter Sunil Gavaskar also backed Sarfaraz and slammed the Indian selectors for ignoring the talent of this much ability.

“At the end of the day, if you are unfit, you are not going to score hundreds. So cricket fitness is most important. I don’t have a problem with you wanting to do the Yo-Yo test or whatever it is, but the Yo-Yo test cannot be the only criterion. You got to make sure that the man is fit for cricket as well. And if the person, whoever it is, is fit for cricket, then I don’t think it should really matter,” said Gavaskar ti Sports Today.
