Sarfaraz Khan's Fastest Fifty on Test Debut 

Sarfaraz Khan made a memorable Test debut, showcasing aggressive batting skills in the ongoing third Test match between India and England. 

He achieved the joint-fastest fifty on Test debut by an Indian post-independence, matching Hardik Pandya's record, reaching the milestone in just 47 balls. 

Despite his brilliant performance, Sarfaraz's innings ended tragically with a run-out at 62 runs off 65 balls due to a mix-up with Ravindra Jadeja. 

He became only the second Indian to be run-out on Test debut after scoring a half-century, following in the footsteps of Abbas Ali Baig, who achieved this 65 years ago.

Unlike Baig, Sarfaraz's feat occurred in the first innings of his Test career, distinguishing him as the first Indian to do so. 

This accomplishment places Sarfaraz among a select group of 13 Indians in history, including notable names like KC Ibrahim, Chandu Borde, and Anil Kumble. 

Sarfaraz's debut innings drew parallels to Baig's debut century against England in Manchester, where he scored 112 runs before being run-out.
