The Suryakumar Message That Convinced Sarfaraz’s Dad To Attend Son’s Debut

If it wasn’t for India batter Suryakumar Yadav, the father of Sarfaraz Khan would not have been present to see his son get the coveted Test cap from Anil Kumble. Naushad Khan was in attendance along with Sarfaraz’s wife on day one of the third Test between India and England at the Niranjan Shah Stadium. Tears rolled down Naushad’s eyes as he witnessed his son get the India cap. Sarfaraz ended up making a strokeful 62 on debut.

However, it took some convincing for Naushad to make up his mind with Suryakumar playing a vital role in it.

Naushad revealed on the sidelines of the game that a message from Suryakumar convinced him to travel to Rajkot.

“Initially, I thought I wouldn’t come as that would put Sarfaraz in some kind of pressure, and apart from that I also had a bit of a cold. But Surya’s message almost made me melt,” he said.
