During one of the overs of Shoaib Bashir on Day 2 of the 4th India vs England Test, Khan was caught in two minds and thus he switched the last resort dive to make it back on time.

India vs England: Sarfaraz Khan makes a Last-Gasp dive to survive a runout scare

Team India batsmen had trouble facing the spin of Shoaib Bashir on Day 2 of the 4th Test. Bashir took 4 scalps to leave India in a spot of bother. The man in form, Yashasvi Jaiswal once proved to be the standout batter. The opening batter ran out of four partners from the other end before getting a brief assist from Sarfaraz Khan. The partnership which although could not go beyond the 31-mark could have ended even before had Sarfaraz Khan suffered a similar fate as he did in Rajkot.

This time Sarfaraz had a few seconds extra to get back home and in a split second he made the right call of making a full-stretch dive. Here's the episode that transpired in Ranchi.

IND vs ENG: Team India in trouble

Despite Yashasvi Jaiswal's continued blitz, Team India is in much precarious position. Aside from Jaiswal, who eventually departed after scoring a handsome 73, no other batter could create much impact. India face the threat of yielding a significant lead to England, and the only hope rests on the shoulders of young Dhruv Jurel. As per the latest score update, India are 7 down at 213 after 68 overs. Earlier, England piled up a fair score of 353 on board, courtesy of a scintillating 122-run knock of Joe Root. Hence, so much action is left in the match.
