Sarfaraz Khan realised his dream by making his debut for India in the Rajkot Test against England.

The Mumbai batter, showcasing his talent with a splendid 62 off 66 balls in his inaugural international innings, shared a heartwarming Instagram story, capturing a hug with captain Rohit Sharma.


In his impactful debut, Sarfaraz played a pivotal role in India's total of 445, displaying promise until an unfortunate run-out, following a mix-up with Ravindra Jadeja, dashed his century hopes.
