He said: “This hundred is because of my abbu (father), his sacrifices, and holding my hand when I could have been down and out. Aap sab toh jaante ho mere saath kya kya hua. Abbu na rehte toh main khatam ho jataa (You all know what I have gone through and had my father not been there, I would have been finished by now).”
“There has been so much struggle and when I think about how my dad dealt with all of it, I get emotional. He didn’t leave my hand even once. My brother put up a status on his cell phone and I could see abbu was so happy. It made my day. In our lives, it’s about all those little dreams that we harbour. The dreams that we (he and his father) have dreamt together. The nearly 2000 runs that I have scored in two seasons since my Mumbai comeback is because of my abbu.” Sarfaraz Khan concluded.
