Sarfaraz, making his debut, was caught short of his crease while trying to respond to Ravindra Jadeja’s call for a single. The incident occurred in the 82nd over, with Jadeja eventually deciding against the run, leaving Sarfaraz stranded and frustrated.

The viral moment captured Rohit’s disappointment as Sarfaraz departed for a well-made 62 off 66 deliveries.

Despite the setback, Rohit and Jadeja showcased resilience, both notching up centuries to steer India to a commanding position at 326 for five by stumps.

The hosts found themselves in early trouble at 33-3, but a remarkable 204-run partnership between Rohit and Jadeja steadied the ship.

Jadeja’s unbeaten 110, his fourth Test century, and Rohit’s gritty 131 led India’s fightback. Rohit’s innings were particularly eventful, including surviving a blow to his helmet and a dropped catch, along with successfully overturning an LBW decision.

With the series locked at 1-1, Rohit’s decision to bat on a placid surface was expected. However, England’s Mark Wood posed significant challenges with his pace, claiming early wickets.

Wood’s aggression removed Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shubman Gill early on, putting India on the back foot. Even spin, introduced by England captain Ben Stokes, yielded immediate results with Tom Hartley dismissing Rajat Patidar.

Despite facing adversity, Rohit and Jadeja stood firm, frustrating England’s bowlers and guiding India back into contention.

Rohit’s century achieved off 157 balls, was celebrated with a subdued acknowledgment, highlighting his determination to make an impact in the crucial Ind vs Eng Test matchup.
