Sarfaraz Khan joins the ‘moneyed’ big league

He made connoisseurs and critics alike sit up with his stirring performances for Royal Challengers Bangalore at this year’s IPL.

He’s switched loyalties from Mumbai to Uttar Pradesh in order to gain more playing time in the Ranji trophy and hopefully catch the selectors’ eye.

And now he’s been signed up by Sunny Gavaskar’s Professional Management Group (PMG) for a princely sum rumored to be in the range of Rs. 1.5 to 2 crores.

All this while he is yet to exit his teens.

What else can a 17-year-old want or seek?

His name is Sarfaraz Khan and he is not the next Sachin Tendulkar.

He is the first and only Sarfaraz Khan.

The move to UP is crafty and many will suspect Sunny’s guiding hand behind the decision.

Rohan Gavaskar turned out for West Bengal to improve his chances of playing for India.

That’s beside the point. The advice is sound.

What Sarfaraz Khan and his parents do not need is an incessant intrusion into his private and playing moments.

The lad is young and will have to prove his mettle over the years.

The dye is cast. Let the true colors shine through.
