Mumbai batsman Sarfaraz Khan has credited his turnaround to hard work and not thinking about the decision that had stalled his blooming career. Sarfaraz has had a memorable Ranji Trophy season as he struck a triple-century during a phase that saw him score 605 runs across three innings. <p></p> <p></p>Mumbai failed to make the quarters but Sarfaraz ended the season with 177 runs against Madhya Pradesh. <p></p> <p></p>"I had practised more and really hard. I worked hard and spent more time on the ground," Sarfaraz told <em>IANS</em>. "I was not getting opportunities. I was waiting for an opportunity. I was waiting for my time to come." <p></p> <p></p>Having switched to Uttar Pradesh in search for better opportunities, the 22-year-old saw his career coming to a standstill instead. Reports of attitude problem and fitness issues continued plague him. <p></p> <p></p>"My dad said so I went," Sarfaraz said of the decision to join UP. "I thought I had to come back to Mumbai to make a career. The UP team was not playing me so I had no choice." <p></p> <p></p>He returned to Mumbai and has now moved on from what happened earlier, choosing to live in the present. "I don't think of what happened in the past. I think of the present and what to do the next day. It's a proud feeling to play for Mumbai in Ranji Trophy," he said. <p></p> <p></p>While playing for India continues to be a dream, the youngster is not thinking that far. "Whenever I get a chance, I have to do well not only in the IPL. I am not thinking of a national call-up, I am thinking of today. Everyone wants to play for India but for that you need to work hard," he said.
