The real test for Sarfaraz will be the next test

That’s talk of Sarfaraz Khan’s debut and entry into the ICC Test rankings, but now comes the real test for Sarfaraz. Even England did not expect a player like Sarfaraz Khan to join the Indian squad. Sarfaraz has not played any international matches before, so the England bowler did not know much about his batting style. Now Sarfaraz has played one game and England have seen his batting style so in the next game they will bowl against him using this strategy. In such a situation, it will be interesting to see how they fare when they take on Ranchi in the second game.
