In a spectacular Test debut, Sarfaraz Khan left an indelible mark on the cricketing canvas. The young Mumbai star showcased his prowess with a fine fifty, only to be undone by an unfortunate run-out.

Anil Kumble, the former Indian captain, humorously compared Sarfaraz Khan's debut misfortune, a run-out, to his own debut where he faced a similar fate. Kumble, known for his wit, commented on Sarfaraz's dominating partnership, suggesting that Jadeja's cautious approach might have influenced the run-out. Despite the shared run-out experience, Kumble jokingly noted that Sarfaraz managed to score 65 runs more than he did on his debut. 

“Sarfaraz was dominating in that partnership. Jadeja, I thought had got into a shell, that sometimes creates a mindset where you are not clear about the decision-making. And maybe that was one of the reasons and possibly I passed on my bad luck of getting run out on debut because I got run out on my debut. But at least he got 65 (Sarfaraz scored 62) more,” Anil Kumble said on Jio Cinema.

The match of the Test series in Rajkot witnessed not just Sarfaraz's memorable debut but also mature tons from Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja. Amidst this batting extravaganza, the young cricketer's dream came true after years of vying for his spot in the lineup.
