Sarfaraz Khan was spotted chilling with fellow cricketers in the dressing room after a golden duck in the fourth Test.

After his powerful Test debut in the ongoing India-England series, Sarfaraz Khan's recent performance in the fourth Test match was a major setback for the cricketer.

In the second innings of the fourth Test, the 26-year-old cricketer faced harsh reality after he departed for a golden duck to Shoaib Bashir’s hat-trick.

The dismissal came in the 38th over in which Khan attempted to negotiate a flighted delivery. The only thing he could manage to do was an inside edge onto the pad, resulting in a straightforward catch for Ollie Pope. While winning and losing are parts of the game, what infuriated netizens the most was Sarfaraz's behaviour after his dismissal on Monday.

After the setback, disappointed Sarfaraz can be seen returning to the pavilion. At that time, India needed 52 more runs to achieve the target.

Moments later, when the onus was on Dhruv Jurel and Shubman Gill to bring the team out of trouble, Sarfaraz was spotted by a cameraman in a rather relaxed mode in the dressing room. He could be seen sitting alongside Mohammed Siraj and Kuldeep Yadav. The sudden transformation of Sarfaraz from disappointment to chilling out with fellow cricketers left the netizens fuming.

Social media reaction

'Siraj, Sarfaraz ko samjha Raha k dekh apne Tak baat nahi aani chahiye,' wrote an X user named Cricket Devotee.

Jurel and Gill managed to steal 52 runs at the last moment, battling it out against the England spinners. In the end, India claimed a comfortable five-wicket win against England. After 2011, it was the first time that Team India successfully chased a target of more than 150 runs in the fourth innings of a Test match since the historic win in Gabba in 2021.
