Rohit Sharma, the captain of the Indian cricket team, attempted to play a shot against Mark Wood’s bouncer but misjudged the pace, resulting in a mistimed shot that led to his dismissal. As he walked back to the pavilion, Rohit Sharma consoled Sarfaraz Khan, who was making his Test debut on February 15. The 26-year-old cricketer, Sarfaraz Khan posted a picture of the moment on his Instagram, and it quickly gained popularity on social media.

Having toiled in domestic cricket for several years, Sarfaraz Khan earned his spot in the national team during the third Test against England in Rajkot. Despite the expectation that he would bat earlier due to three quick wickets falling, the team management opted to send the experienced Ravindra Jadeja ahead to maintain the right-hand-left-hand combination. As a result, Sarfaraz remained padded up for over three hours before finally getting the opportunity to bat.

In the 64th over of the game, the Indian captain attempted to pull a delivery from Wood for a boundary but misjudged the ball’s pace, resulting in a straightforward catch for Ben Stokes. The crowd in the stadium rose to their feet as Rohit departed after scoring 131 runs. Meanwhile, Sarfaraz Khan prepared to take his turn on the field. As he stepped onto the pitch, the returning Rohit offered a supportive pat on the back to his fellow Mumbai teammate, symbolizing a passing of the torch moment. This gesture is reminiscent of the legendary Sachin Tendulkar passing a message to Virat Kohli during the 2011 ODI World Cup final in Mumbai. If Sarfaraz establishes himself in international cricket, this small interaction with Rohit could become an iconic moment, much like Tendulkar’s message to Kohli.
