In a quirky yet attention-grabbing moment, Rohit Sharma was spotted organizing fielding positions in his own unique style during the ongoing Test. Utilizing his shoes as makeshift markers, he directed Sarfaraz Khan to stand at leg gully and instructed Yashavi Jaiswal to take up the slip position, showcasing his innovative approach to setting the field.

This isn’t the first time Rohit Sharma has injected humour into the game. In a recent incident during the Ranchi Test, Rohit playfully reprimanded Sarfaraz Khan for neglecting to wear a helmet while fielding at silly point. Despite Sarfaraz’s attempts to convince Rohit otherwise, the skipper emphasized the importance of safety, ensuring his teammate understood the potential risks involved.

Shifting the focus to the ongoing match, India managed to restrict England to a modest total of 218 runs on Day 1, thanks to stellar performances from Kuldeep Yadav, who clinched a magnificent five-wicket haul, and Ravichandran Ashwin, who scalped four crucial wickets.


Although Zak Crawley emerged as the highest scorer for England with a gritty 77, the English batsmen failed to capitalize on their starts, with Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, and Ben Foakes all falling short of converting their innings into substantial contributions.
