Sarfaraz Khan made an impressive Test debut, scoring 62 runs, which included nine fours and a six. His half-century also matched Hardik Pandya’s Indian record for the quickest fifty on Test debut.

During the third Test match between India and England on February 15, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma reacted strongly in the dressing room after Sarfaraz Khan was run out at the non-striker’s end on Day 1. 

Ravindra Jadeja was on 99 when he hit the ball towards mid-on, looking for a quick single. Sarfaraz was almost at the middle of the pitch when Jadeja changed his mind, resulting in Sarfaraz being run out by Mark Wood’s direct hit from mid-on.

Rohit expressed his frustration by throwing his cap in reaction to the run out, which was caught on video and has gone viral on social media.
