However, doubts have been raised by former India cricketer Deep Dasgupta regarding Sarfaraz’s ability to perform under pressure, citing his lack of significant contributions in high-stakes matches despite boasting an impressive First Class cricket average of nearly 70.

As Sarfaraz awaits his chance to prove himself on the international stage, all eyes will be on how he responds to this opportunity.

Deep Dasgupta’s criticism of Sarfaraz Khan , Ind vs End.

“Credit to him that he has been in good form for the last two to three years. He scored runs recently against England A as well. He was performing consistently but there were two questions.

“The biggest question was in place of whom. We say very easily that this or that player should be there but only 11 can play and the squad can have only 15 or 16. Secondly, there was also this question and I have heard it from a few people that where are the runs in big matches,” Dasgupta on his (YouTube channel).

The former wicket-keeper believes that First Class cricket lacks the caliber of teams necessary for selectors to accurately assess a player’s suitability for the national team.

“When people talk about first-class cricket, with all due respect, you have 37 teams. You are also playing against some very average teams. I shouldn’t be saying this, it will be disrespectful to some of the teams, but the quality of runs is also important. I am not saying this against Sarfaraz.”

Deep Dasgupta also shared his thoughts on the comparison between Shubman Gill and Sarfaraz Khan, indicating that the selectors are inclined to give Gill more opportunities due to their perception of his greater potential compared to Khan.

“At times, the selectors and team management have to be convinced about you as a player and you as a talent. For example, Shubman Gill vs Sarfaraz Khan, do you think both of them will get the same number of chances?”

“No, they won’t. It is very normal or natural because you see more potential in one. So you give chances based on potential. It becomes very important that the team management, selectors, and captain trust your potential, about what you can do,” he asserted.
