Sunil Gavaskar-owned PMG sign RCB youngster Sarfaraz Khan

BATTING LEGEND Sunil Gavaskar-owned Professional Management Group (PMG) on Thurdsay announced the signing of promising batting talent Sarfaraz Khan on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The deal will see PMG, headed by Gavaskar and co-owned by Sam Balsara, chairperson Madison World and Noomi Mehta, chairperson and managing director Selvel One Group, manage 17-year-old Sarfaraz's all commercial dealings.

Having entered the spotlight as a 12-year-old for posting a record breaking score in the famed Harris Shield inter-school tournament in Mumbai, Sarfaraz went on to leave his mark on the international stage with an impressive showing at the 2014 Under-19 World Cup where he finished as India's third highest run-getter.

He also lit up this season's IPL with a memorable cameo for Royal Challengers Bangalore against Rajasthan Royals' bowling attack comprising James Faulkner and Shane Watson.

"I am very happy to sign for PMG. To be associated with a company run by one of India's greatest ever cricketers in Sunil Gavaskar will surely help me take my career to the next step," Sarfaraz said.

Gavaskar, director of PMG added:

"I have had the pleasure of watching Sarfaraz bat on a few occasions and he certainly comes across as an exciting young talent. I hope his association with PMG can be a stepping stone towards helping him fulfil his immense potential."

Melroy D'Souza, chief operating officer of PMG said:

"We are delighted to have signed Sarfaraz on board. We believe he has a bright future ahead of him and will utilise this partnership to extend all the off-field support we possibly can to him so that he can stay focused on his career."
