Sarfaraz Khan made an outstanding Test debut during the third game vs England in Rajkot. The 26-year-old scored 62 runs on debut before confusion while running cost him his wicket. 

The incident happened in the 82nd over of the Indian innings with Ravindra Jadeja batting on 99. The Indian all-rounder pushed the ball to mid-on and Sa*rfaraz was already running. Before Jadeja could decline the single, Mark Wood threw the ball and hit the stumps on the full.
