Sarafarz’s inclusion in the team comes after the announcement that star players Ravindra Jadeja and KL Rahul have been ruled out of the second Test due to injuries. Sarfaraz, who has showcased great performances in domestic cricket, has finally earned his place in Team India for the second Test against England in Vizag, starting February 02, 2024.
