The young player, Sarfaraz Khan was retained by the struggling team of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) to play in 2018 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) but he wasn’t able to impress the people around him. He was then bought by the Kings XI Punjab franchisee for this season of IPL at a price of 25 lakhs. Kings XI Punjab is currently at the half bottom of the points table but Khan has been a good player for the season.
The 21-year old player, Sarfaraz Khan is the leading run scorer for the franchisee with 165 runs in four matches at an average of 55. In their previous encounter against the Chennai Super Kings, he played an impressive 67 runs from 59 balls at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. He even smacked four boundaries and a couple of sixes. However, all his efforts went in vain as the team in turn failed to garner the victory and in turn the hosts registered victory for themselves.
Sarfaraz is someone who has got incredible abilities to play well says Ashwin
Sarfaraz came to bat after the team lost early wickets of Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul as the duo stitched a partnership of 110 runs from 93 deliveries. After this impressive play by the Kings XI Punjab batsman, Sarfaraz Khan, the controversial captain R Ashwin said that he is one of the best players in the team and he has got incredible abilities to play well.
“Sarfaraz is someone who has got incredible abilities to play well. And look what has happened today can happen to anybody because it is not one of those wickets when you come to CSK and it is easier to finish the game,” said Ashwin.
Sarfaraz has been in good form and batting really well said Ashwin
He further said that it wasn’t easy to for them to score runs and hit sixes since the boundary was very long. He said that the batsman, Khan has been in good form and batting really well. “It is a wicket with a long boundary and it’s not going to be easy to hit sixes. He has been in good form and batting really well. I am sure the person who is not able to cross the line today will cross it tomorrow,” said Ashwin.
Punjab will be playing their next game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad at the PCA Stadium in Mohali on Monday, April 8.
