Sarfaraz Khan maintained his worrisome batting performance on Thursday by hitting another century, this time against Madhya Pradesh in the decisive final. It was not Sarfaraz’s customary free-flowing knock, and that is what made it unique.
To reach the goal, he had to put in a lot of effort. He had twelve boundaries over his century. He hit a boundary off Kumar Kartikeya to reach his hundredth career run. To get there, he needed 190 balls. His heartfelt celebration after reaching 100 is gaining popularity.
💯 for Sarfaraz Khan! 👏 👏

Sarfaraz kept losing partners at the other end, but that did not perturb him as he continued batting normally. After his hundred, he hit his first six.
Sarfaraz may not even have succeeded in getting sufficient chances for the Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League (IPL), but the 24-year-old has been in mesmerizing form in red-ball cricket in the ongoing Ranji Trophy 2022 edition.
Sarfaraz Khan has more than 2,200 first-class runs:
Currently, Sarfaraz Khan has over 2,200 first-class runs with an average of over 80 and seven hundred. None of his six hundred from the past has fallen below 150. Two 150+ scores, one triple hundred, and two double hundreds.
The 41-time winners were unable to construct a 50+ stand after Yashasvi Jaiswal and captain Prithvi Shaw added 87 for the first wicket earlier on day 1, as Madhya Pradesh fought back from the second session on.
Mumbai is doing well at lunchtime on Day 2 with 351 for seven. Sarfaraz is unbeaten at 119 and is joined by Tushar Deshpande. Mumbai would like to get as near to the 400-run threshold as they can. Without a question, Mumbai is in charge of the summit confrontation.
