IND vs ENG: Is Saurabh so cool? Fall in batting and bowling! You will be shocked to see the record - SportsNight

Rookie all-rounder Saurabh Kumar is one of the three players who have been called up for the second cricket test against England.  Another rookie batsman, Sarfaraz Khan, and Washington Sundar, who has already played in all three formats, are the other two who have made it to the national team.  With KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja withdrawing from the next Test due to injury, the selectors have replaced them with three players.  Rahul and Jadeja were injured during the first Test in Hyderabad.  On the fourth day, Jadeja injured his ankle while batting in India's second innings.  He was run out while trying for a single and left the ground limping after getting out due to a leg muscle injury.  With this, Jadeja's playing in the second Test was also in doubt.  After this, he has withdrawn from the next Test. Sarfaraz's name has been a hot topic in the news for a long time.  Despite his consistent performances in domestic cricket, he was constantly overlooked by the Test team.  But the truth is that not many people know about Saurabh Kumar.  Who is this player who was unexpectedly drawn into Team India?  Let's know more about him.

30-year-old Saurabh Kumar is a left-arm spin bowling all-rounder just like Jadeja.  

Saurabh is a left-handed batsman and left-arm orthodox spinner who plays for the Uttar Pradesh team in domestic cricket.  It is clear from this that he is also a player who has a lot in common with Jadeja.  Although not as much as Jaddu, Saurabh has the ability to make crucial contributions for the team in batting and bowling.  This is confirmed by his performance for UP in domestic cricket.  Saurabh has played 68 matches in first class cricket.  Out of these he has scored 2061 runs at an average of 27.11 with a strike rate of 73.58.  This includes two centuries and 12 fifties.  The highest score is 133 runs. In List A cricket, Saurabh has 314 runs including one fifty at a strike rate of 83.06 from 35 matches and 148 runs at a strike rate of 128.69 from 33 T20s.  It should be mentioned that he is not only good in batting but also in bowling. In first class cricket, Saurabh has collected 290 wickets at an economy rate of 2.76 from 68 matches.He has taken 10 wickets in a game eight times.  The all-rounder has taken five wickets 22 times and four wickets 15 times.  Saurabh took 49 wickets in List A cricket and 24 wickets in T2. ​​Saurabh played for India A team in the recently concluded unofficial second Test against England Lions.  In this match, the star also shone in batting and bowling.  He scored 77 runs in batting and took six wickets in bowling.  This is what prompted the selectors to call Sourabh for the second Test against England. Before the second cricket Test against England to be started on Friday, there has been a big change in the Indian team.  Star batsman KL Rahul and super all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja have pulled out of the next Test due to injuries.  Instead, three people have been called to the team.  It is noteworthy that both of them are newcomers.  It should be mentioned that Sarfaraz Khan, the young run machine in domestic cricket who has been neglected by the selectors for a long time, has finally been drawn into the team.Sarfaraz has been performing consistently for Mumbai over the past few seasons, including in the Ranji Trophy.  Still, the selectors were heavily criticized for not giving the player a place in the Test team.  Now due to Rahul's injury, Sarfaraz's time has also been cleared. Apart from Sarfaraz, the other players who have made it to the Indian team for the second Test are left-arm spin bowling all-rounder Washington Sundar and rookie all-rounder Saurabh Kumar.  Rahul and Jadeja were injured during the first Test in Hyderabad where India suffered a shocking defeat. On the fourth day of batting, Jaddu suffered muscle spasms.  BCCI informed through a press release that Rahul had reported pain in the muscle in his right leg after the match.  The absence of Rahul and Jadeja is a big setback for India when the team is trailing 0-1 in the five-Test series. 26-year-old Sarfaraz has an impressive record in first-class cricket.  He scored 3912 runs from 45 matches at an average of 69.85.  This includes 14 centuries and 11 fifties.  Sarfaraz has scored 629 runs at an average of 34.95 including two centuries from 37 matches in List A cricket and 1188 runs from 96 matches in T20.
