IND vs ENG, 3rd Test: Ravindra Jadeja Apologies To Sarfaraz Khan After The Run-out Incident In Rajkot

On Thursday, Ravindra Jadeja asked for an apology to his teammate Sarfaraz Khan for accidentally running him out during the opening day of the third Test against England in Rajkot.

After the Day 1 game, Jadeja took to his official Instagram account and said sorry to Sarfaraz writing -“Feeling bad for Sarfaraz Khan. It was my wrong call. Well played.”
