Sarfaraz Khan

IPL 2019: WATCH – When Sarfaraz Khan stunned everyone with his scoop shot (KXIP vs DC)

Sarfaraz Khan is only 21, but reputation precedes his name. Known as one of the most talented batsmen, the right-hander is also famous for pulling out some outlandish shots. And scoop shot is one of his favourites.

The Kings XI Punjab batsman played an amazing scoop shot during his 39-run knock against Delhi Capitals (DC) in Mohali on Monday.


In the ninth over of the KXIP innings, Sarfaraz scooped an Avesh Khan delivery by getting on his knees, and head bowed down. The ball sailed over wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant’s head for a boundary.

Here’s the video:

Sarfaraz gathered applaud from the commentators for his scoop shot. When asked about it, he said, “My dad himself is a cricketer, so he has been playing these (scoop) shots from that time. So I learnt by seeing him.”

After a 14 run-win over Delhi Capitals, Kings XI Punjab has climbed up to the number two position in the points table. They are behind Chennai Super Kings (CSK) who has a better run rate with an equal number of wins in one less game.
