After waiting for years, Sarfaraz Khan is now poised to fulfill his childhood aspiration of playing for India in Test cricket. Despite his consistent excellence in domestic matches, the Mumbai-born cricketer was largely overlooked by selectors. However, with several key batters unavailable or out of form, Sarfaraz Khan seized his chance in Rajkot for the third Test against England.

The iconic Anil Kumble presented him with his debut Test cap, marking the culmination of years of unwavering commitment. As the team gathered around, Sarfaraz’s father, Naushad Khan, stood at the center, his eyes brimming with emotion, on the verge of tears. Witnessing the moment up close, he embraced his son tightly and tenderly kissed the Indian emblem on the cap once the ceremony concluded. Meanwhile, Sarfaraz’s mother couldn’t contain her tears, perhaps recognizing not only the significance of the cap but also the countless hours of practice, sacrifices, and dreams woven into each stroke of his bat.

Similar to Sarfaraz, Dhruv Jurel also marked his Test debut in Rajkot, with Dinesh Karthik presenting him with the coveted cap. The wicketkeeper-batsman appeared visibly moved by the occasion. Jurel took the place of KS Bharat in the playing XI, whose batting had become a major concern for the Indian team. Notably, the 23-year-old Jurel boasts a commendable record, having played 15 First Class matches in his career, amassing 790 runs at an impressive average of 46.47. Additionally, he demonstrates proficiency behind the stumps, making him a promising asset in the middle order.
