Ravindra Jadeja apologize through Insta story for Runout Debacle

Chennai Super King Ravindra Jadeja also showed his class on and off the field; he won everyone’s hearts with a gesture that nobody saw coming.

After the end of the first day of the third test between India and England, Jadeja took to Instagram to apologise to Sarfaraz Khan for a wrong call that cost the debutant his wicket.
Taking to social media, Jadeja posted a story in which he wrote, “feeling bad for @sarfarazkhan97 it was my bad call, well played.”

Jadeja shares story to apologise for Sarfaraz Ahmed’s runout

Jadeja shared this story in the context of a runout in the game. In the 82nd over of the match, Jadeja was looking for a quick single while batting at 99. He thought a single was on after hitting the ball at mid-on. However, he soon realised that he had made a wrong call and decided to send back his partner.

Watch: Sarfaraz Khan’s chaotic Runout

However, Sarfaraz was too far down the pitch, thinking that he would have to run for his life to complete the 100th run for his teammate. Hence, when he was asked to return to his crease, he found himself sold down the river as Mark Wood dismantled the timber with a direct hit that resulted in a fantastic inning coming to an end.
Sarfaraz Khan, playing his first international inning, was looking in the form of his life. He came in the middle when India lost Rohit Sharma, yet he played like this was his 100th test.

His fifty, the joint-fastest by an Indian debutant since World War II, arrived in a mere 48 balls, a whirlwind of attacking brilliance. While a runout on 62 cut his innings short, the impact lingered. He had shown the world a glimpse of his immense talent, his fearlessness against a quality attack making him a beacon of hope for Indian cricket.

Jadeja will be expected to score big from here onwards. He was able to bring up his 4th ton in test cricket on the very next ball. It was followed by a muted celebration as the Indian allrounder silently mourned the runout of his compatriot.

India are in a pole position at the end of the day. Aided by a scintillating hundred by the skipper, a whiplash of an inning by Sarfaraz and another hundred by Jadeja, the hosts stand tall at 326 for 5 with Jadeja batting with night watchman Kuldeep Yadav.
