Indian captain Rohit Sharma was left fuming after debutant Sarfaraz Khan was run out for 62 following a mix-up with Ravindra Jadeja on the opening day of the third Test against England in Rajkot on Thursday.

Sarfaraz, who walked in to bat after the exit of captain Rohit following a 204-run stand for the fourth wicket along with Jadeja, made it count. The 26-year-old, who had to wait for a long time to don India colours, used the sweep shot to good effect against the spinners.

Sarfaraz raced to 50 off 48 balls, with the help of six fours and a six. He was unfortunate to be run out after Jadeja sent him back with the latter on 99. An angry Rohit slammed his cap after the dismissal.

Sarfaraz hit nine fours and a six in his 66-ball knock. Sarfaraz dominated the fifth-wicket partnership of 77 with Jadeja.
Rohit was not to be seen when Jadeja completed his century.
