Mumbai batter Sarfaraz Khan paid a heart-rending tribute to late singer Sidhu Moosewala after scoring a magnificent century in the 2021-22 Ranji Trophy final against Madhya Pradesh at Bengaluru’s Chinnaswamy Stadium on Thursday, June 23. Sarfaraz came to bat when Mumbai were 147- 3 after 50.1 overs. The top order had fallen without a big score and the middle order was doing the same. But the right-handed batter dug in and smashed his 101 off 190 balls. He reached his century with a boundary against spinner Kumar Kartikeya in the 114th over. The youngster unfurled an animated celebration, punching the air and letting out an intense, teary-eyed roar. He then did the thigh-five, a popular signature step of Moosewala, which gained emotional significance when the Punjabi singer’s father did it proudly during his son’s funeral procession. Here’s a video of the same: Moosewala, one of the most popular and revered singers of his generation, was brutally shot dead on May 29 at the age of 28 in his home district of Mansa.
