Meanwhile, Sarfaraz's debut was a significant one, as he played a crucial role in helping India reach a formidable first-innings score of 445 against England. His performance was especially emotional as his father, Naushad Khan, was visibly moved, shedding tears of pride when legendary cricketer Anil Kumble presented Sarfaraz with his maiden Test cap.

The young batsman's innings was not without drama; a misunderstanding with teammate Ravindra Jadeja led to his run-out, an incident that visibly frustrated Rohit. Despite this, Sarfaraz's batting, which included a confident start with a boundary off Rehan Ahmed and aggressive play against England's bowlers, especially Joe Root and Tom Hartley, earned him praise galore from the cricketing community.

His knock was highlighted by his signature sweep shots and powerful pulls, propelling him to a half-century in just 48 deliveries. The young batter will look to replicate his form in the rest of the series and consolidate his position in India’s playing XI.
