VIDEO: Sarfaraz Khan Had Tears of Joy after Svoring Ton In Ranji Trophy Final


On Day 2 of the Ranji Trophy final versus Madhya Pradesh, Mumbai batsman Sarfaraz Khan was overtaken with emotion as he reached his century. The 23-year-old was visibly moved to tears as he removed his helmet after celebrating his century while feeling elated and emotional. He ended his celebration with a thigh-five in the Shikhar Dhawan fashion. His eighth First Class century overall was his fourth century of the current campaign.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India took to Twitter to share a video of the moment Sarfaraz reached his century. β€œThis has been a superb knock in the all-important summit clash,” the BCCI captioned the video.

Sarfaraz Khan’s IPL team, Delhi Capitals, also shared the video and wrote β€œ100% Shuddh Emotions”.
