Mumbai batsman Sarfaraz Khan turned emotional as he completed his century on the second day of the Ranji Trophy final against Madhya Pradesh. The 24-year-old was emotional and excited as he completed his century and tears welled up when he took off his helmet. He concluded his celebration with a Shikhar Dhawan-style thigh-five. It was his fourth century of the season and his eighth first-class century overall. The Board of Control for Cricket in India took to Twitter to share a video of the moment Sarfaraz reached a century.

“It’s been a great knock in the all-important summit clash,” BCCI said in the caption of the video.

Sarfaraz Khan’s IPL team, Delhi Capitals also shared the video and wrote “100% pure emotion”.

Sarfaraz started the day with 40 runs and completed his half-century off 152 balls. With Mumbai losing wickets at the other end, he effectively picked up the pace after reaching his half-century.

He scored his next fifty off just 38 balls which helped Mumbai cross the 300-run mark.

Sarfaraz was eventually dismissed for 134, with Mumbai scoring 374 in their first essay.

Mumbai captain Prithvi Shaw won the toss and decided to bat first. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shaw shared an 87-run partnership before the captain was dismissed for 47.


Despite the wicket falling at the other end, Jaiswal scored 78 runs. But on the second day, it was Sarfaraz Khan’s show as he did the bulk of the scoring.

For Madhya Pradesh, pacer Gaurav Yadav was the bowlers’ choice, with four wickets to his name.
