One of Team India's newest debutants Sarfaraz Khan's father Naushad pleaded captain Rohit Sharma to take care of him ahead of his much-awaited Test debut. In a video that has gone viral on social media, Rohit Sharma met Sarfaraz's wife and father and gave his assurance with a bright smile while also congratulating them.

Sarfaraz's father had grown hugely emotional while looking at his son in national colours for the first time as the two hugged after the 26-year-old got his Test cap from Anil Kumble. With the Mumbai batter set to play for the first time at the highest level, his father was inevitably nervous and hoped for Rohit to look after his son.

Here's how the conversation transpired:

Rohit Sharma: Sabko pata hai aapka ladka hai. Bahut Bahut mubaar rakho. (Everyone knows he is your son).

Sarfaraz's father: Dhyaan rakhna hamaare bete ka (Please look after my son).

Rohit: Haan bilkul bilkul. (Will surely do).

Sarfaraz Khan translates his strong domestic form smoothly into international cricket:

The 26-year-old Mumbai batter looked at home from the outset as he walked out at 237-3 after Rohit Sharma perished to Mark Wood for 131. The right-hander raised his half-century off only 48 deliveries and was on track for a three-figure score on debut.

However, a terrible mix-up with Ravindra Jadeja resulted in his downfall as Mark Wood's direct hit caught him short at the non-striker's end. Nevertheless, the home side did well to recover from 33-3 to reach 326-5 by close.
