Who’s the father of Sarfaraz Khan?
Sarfaraz’s success was made possible by Naushad’s unshakable determination, which extended from selling toffees and cucumbers in trains to making ends meet by selling track pants. When 26-year-old cricketer Sarfaraz accepted his Test cap from former Indian spinner Anil Kumble, there was an obvious emotional connection between him and his father.

Who is Naushad Khan?

On the maidans, Naushad was referred to as “Macho” by the locals. Soon, everyone started referring to Sarfaraz by the same name. Sarfaraz knew he couldn’t fail because Naushad had put so much in him. Sarfaraz felt a tremendous weight lifted off his shoulders on Thursday upon receiving his Test cap.
