His father was both strict and funny and didn’t want him to miss a single practice.
And not only that, but his father Naushad Khan, also added one game during his practicing session. When Sarfaraz was 15, his father put a price on his wicket, whenever he was knocked out, his father lost 50 rupees.
He did it to teach him the importance of wickets in the cricket world.
