The Rohit Sharma-led Team India are taking on England in the third Test in Rajkot as the five-match Test series currently stands poised at 1-1. After the Men in Blue posted 445 runs in the first innings, they then built on the lead after they reduced the visitors to 319. 

Just when Sarfaraz Khan and Yashasvi Jaiswal unleashed their prowess in the middle before India declared the innings with a 556-run lead, the two Indian batters were seen having an animated chat. With Khan on strike off Rehan Ahmed’s over, the 26-year-old pressed it towards deep cover, hoping for a couple of runs.

While Sarfaraz went for a single, hoping for a double, the Jaiswal sent him back, leaving Khan unhappy with this gesture. Just when these two were inside their crease, Sarfaraz Khan was seen saying “Pagal hai kya tu” with Rohit Sharma also dropping some words and reacting on this mix-up.

However, both these players reached their respective benchmarks during their stay in the middle before Rohit Sharma declared the inning with India posting 430/4. While Sarfaraz Khan emulated Sunil Gavaskar to become fourth Indian batter to score twin half-centuries on Test debut, Jaiswal became third youngest to score two double tons at the age of 22 years and 49 days, after Vinod Kambi and Don Bradman.
