Sarfaraz Khan went past "Sir Don Bradman" to achieve the World Record in First-class cricket 
There are a few players that have given some brilliant performances on the domestic circuit. But one man that stays above the rest is Safaraz Khan. The Mumbai batter has been in red-hot form and has been scoring tonnes of runs at the domestic level.

He scored yet another hundred in red-ball cricket, which came against Madhya Pradesh in the Irani Cup. He ended up with 138 runs off 178 balls following two superb centuries. Notably, he scored 135 runs in the Ranji Trophy and 127 runs in the final of the Duleep Trophy.

With his century, the score of Rest of India was 205/3 at the end of the second day, while Sarfaraz was unbeaten on 126-ball 125. Batting first, the 2019-20 Ranji Trophy winners were bowled out for 98 runs in 24.5 overs. Umran Malik (3/25) and Kuldeep Sen (3/41) were stars with the ball.

Earlier, India's star batter, Suryakumar Yadav, who enjoyed Sarfaraz's knock on TV, took to his social media account and sent him a salute, which shows how well Sarfaraz has been doing consistently. However, after such a performance, the Mumbai batter has also made a remarkable achievement in cricket.

He has overtaken the legendary Australian batter, Sir Don Bradman. Although it took seven more innings to reach the milestone, he is now ahead of Sir Don Bradman. The Australian legend scored 2927 runs in 22 innings in first-class games, while Sarfaraz had scored 2928 in 29 innings.

Notably, his batting strike rate is also the second best in first class cricket, and Bradman tops that chart of first class strike rates. The Mumbai batter scored his century in front of the chariman selector, Chetan Sharma, and former Indian cricketer Sunil Joshi. Sarfaraz hit 19 fours and three sixes in his knock.

Sarfaraz came to the crease when his team was in trouble at 18/3, but he just took the match away and started playing with his aggressive approach. He added an unbeaten partnership of 185 runs with Hanuma Vihari (62*) for the fourth wicket.
