Will Sarfaraz Khan be the greatest Khan?

Well he'll certainly have some competition to even be the second greatest Khan given some of the other Khans who have been Khans while also being cricketers but he's off to a bloody good start.

Right now he's got 2099 first class runs at an average of 77 from his 22 matches, which is the second highest first class average of all time (with a 2000 run cut off) behind only Sir Donald Bradman. So it would appear that he compares favourably not only among Khans, but among all other people generally except among Bradmans.

In this article he says he would face 600-700 balls a day at Mumbai's Cross Maidan to work on his game after having been dropped from first class cricket. This pisses me off because it takes about 20 net sessions to face that many balls where I play. But good luck to him.

Feel free to keep bumping this thread if he makes the test team, and especially so if he becomes a modern great. Otherwise, feel free to never think about him again.

Mumbai's Sarfaraz Khan.

He could certainly be one of the heftiest

Delhi in the IPL had a wonderful lineup - Shaw/Pant/Sarfraz all have BMIs in the late 20s.

Should be given at least a run of 5 tests.Rather than playing him in 1-2 test and dropping him for forever.

Some one pointed out Genghis to be the greatest. Then there is another Khan who was a prime minister of a large country and has claims to being best bowling all rounder of all time. Then there is another Khan who is probably the most known actor around the globe.

No mean feat if he can become the fourth.

He's have to do extremely well to pass Younis.

I think the better question is whether he'll even play tests.

"He'll be doing extremely well to pass Charlemagne tbh. The better question is whether he'll even lead Mongolia."
