Sarfaraz Khan rose to prominence when, aged 12, he broke the record for the highest score in the Harris Shield inter-school tournament, making 439 for Rizvi Springfield in an innings that featured 56 fours and 12 sixes. However, prior to his introduction to the global scene, Sarfaraz was suspended on charges of fudging his age by the Mumbai Cricket Association, before the board eventually accepted the results of an advanced test. 
After an exceptional season for the Mumbai Under-19 team, Sarfaraz, who trains under the tutelage of father and coach Naushad Khan, earned a call-up for the India Under-19 quadrangular series in 2013. He responded with a match-winning 66-ball 101 while chasing against South Africa.

A year later, Sarfaraz finished as the second-highest run-scorer in the Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh, with 355 runs from six matches, often rescuing India from faltering starts. Sarfaraz left Mumbai for Uttar Pradesh in the 2015-16 domestic season.
