Sarfaraz Khan's Hilarious Moment with Rohit Sharma Highlights Their Strong Bond

Sarfaraz Khan's Test debut for India has not only showcased his cricketing prowess but also his camaraderie with teammates, particularly skipper Rohit Sharma. On Day 1 of the 5th Test against England in Dharamsala, the bond between Rohit and Sarfaraz was evident once again.

During the match, Sarfaraz was positioned at short-leg but seemed to struggle with the exact placement. Rohit, noticing his teammate's difficulty, decided to intervene. He pulled Sarfaraz back a few steps and positioned him precisely where he wanted him. The hilarious moment was captured on camera and has since gone viral on social media.

The incident highlights the strong bond between Rohit and Sarfaraz, which has grown since the latter's Test debut. Rohit's willingness to guide and support his younger teammate is a testament to his leadership qualities.

Beyond the humorous moment, the match itself saw India take control on Day 1. Openers Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal put on a 104-run partnership, putting pressure on the English bowlers. Jaiswal reached his half-century in just 55 balls.

After Jaiswal's dismissal, Shubman Gill joined Rohit at the crease and stitched together a 31-run unbeaten stand. At the end of the day's play, India were 135/1, trailing by 83 runs. Rohit remained unbeaten on 52*, while Gill was on 26*.

England were bowled out for 218 in their first innings, with Kuldeep Yadav taking five wickets for 72 runs. Ravichandran Ashwin cleaned up the tail end, ensuring India's dominance.

The match is poised for an exciting finish, with India looking to level the series and England determined to secure a victory. The camaraderie between Rohit and Sarfaraz will undoubtedly be a factor as the match progresses.
