IND vs ENG 3rd Test: Indian captain Rohit Sharma seemingly lost his cool after a horrible mix-up between Ravindra Jadeja and Sarfaraz Khan got the latter batter out on his debut innings. Rohit Sharma expressed his frustration, as Mark Wood inflicted a brilliant run out to break the threatening partnership towards the end of day 1 of the ongoing IND vs ENG 3rd test.

Sarfaraz Khan’s impressing out at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot was cut short by Ravindra Jadeja, whose blunder made the debutant sacrifice his wicket.

The incident happened in the 82nd over when Ravindra Jadeja was batting at 99 runs. Jadeja drove the fifth delivery of the over towards mid-on, where Mark Wood was stationed. As soon as Jadeja drove the ball, he took a couple of steps to steal the run but, backed out and turned down the single. However, by then Sarfaraz Khan, who was at the non-striker’s end, was well outside his crease and couldn’t make it back to the popping crease as Wood threw the ball and uprooted the stumps.

Sarfaraz Khan’s unfortunate dismissal left everyone in shock as the batter was having a brilliant outing in his debut game. Everyone, including his parents and supporters, was disappointed looking at how the debutant had to walk back. The reactions from the dressing room also came as soon as the run-out was inflicted by Mark Wood.

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma lost his cool in the dressing room, as seen in the video footage and was seen flinging his cap in disgust following the run-out.

The anguish of the captain can be seen in the video down below:

Notably, Ravindra Jadeja, who was batting beautifully till then went into the shell when he came close to his 90s. The all-rounder, though, took 200 balls to score his 4th test ton, he almost took an age to complete the last 10 runs of the three-figure milestone.

The famous sword celebration of Jadeja was seen as he completed the last run for his century, but Sarfaraz’s wicket took off its sheen. Nevertheless, credit where it’s due.

After coming to bat when the team was in danger of another collapse, Jadeja went on to stitch a 200-run partnership with captain Rohit Sharma. The two batters ensured that the team get into a comfortable position before any more wickets fall.
