Pakistan opening batter Imam-ul-Haq displayed his ecstasy at Indian domestic cricketer Sarfaraz Khan finally getting a national call-up. Imam took to his official handle on X (formerly Twitter) and claimed that he is exceptionally happy for the right-hander by posting Sarfaraz's picture. The left-hander will inevitably feel more happy should he cash in on the opportunity.

Sarfaraz has been performing well in the domestic circuit for quite a while now and was in line to get a spot during the tour of the West Indies last year, but the selectors faced plenty of flak for ignoring him. With KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja injured ahead of the 2nd Test against England, the selectors have turned to the Mumbai-born cricketer, given he averages 69.85 in 45 first-class fixtures.

Meanwhile, Imam took to X and wrote the below:

"Congratulaions brother So Happy for you."

India's squad for 2nd Test:

Rohit Sharma (C), Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shreyas Iyer, KS Bharat (WK), Dhruv Jurel (WK), Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohd. Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah (VC), Avesh Khan, Rajat Patidar, Sarfaraz Khan, Washington Sundar, Sourabh Kumar.

Meanwhile, India trail the series as England sent the hosts tumbling to a defeat despite facing a 190-run deficit after day 2 of the 1st Test. Ollie Pope's 1st ton in India helped them wipe off the deficit and take a 230-run lead. Later, Tom Hartley followed it up with a seven-wicket haul in the 4th innings as India fell 28 runs short.
