In the period between May 19, 2018, and March 25, 2019 — Sarfaraz kept his hunger alive through local tournaments such as Kanga League and DY Patil Tournament. Being in Kanga helped him stay in close proximity with his father-cum-coach, Naushad, who has been monitoring his progress. The senior Khan still plays the league in the ‘B’ division for Young Mohammedan.

Sarfaraz emerged as the top scorer in Kanga League ‘A’ Division representing Payyade Sports Club. He finished with 284 runs in four innings at an average of 71 with a strike rate of 94.04.

“Sarfaraz wanted to come back and play for Mumbai, so he had to follow the rules of the cooling-off period. Most of the games in DY Patil Tournament were coming live on Facebook and YouTube. I have never missed him in action. At times, if I thought he needed me, I would go to the venue,” Naushad told Sportstar.
