Sarfaraz Khan Hugs Wife After Getting India Debut Cap, Influencers Circulated False Claims: Fact-Check

Pictures of test debuntant Sarfaraz Khan with his family have gone viral, with the rumour going around that his parents watched him play his debut innings from the pavilion during IND vs. ENG.

@Cricnook tweeted “The emotions were speechless when Sarfaraz khan got a maiden test cap Infront of his father & mother! “`Cricket really is everyone’s game“` #INDvENG #ENGvsIND #SarfarazAhmed #INDvsENGTest” on Feb 15, 2024.

Several other accounts, including @Themohit_19, @TrueScoopNews made the same claim that Sarfaraz Khan’s father and mother cries inconsolably after they saw their son playing his debut innings from the pavilion against England. The archive can be read from above.

What is the Actual Truth About this Incident? : Fact

The woman is not Sarfaraz Khan’s mother; rather, she is his wife. So, the claims made that it was his father and mother are not true at all.

We visited The Hindustan Times, which published an article on this incident on Feb 15, 2024 with the headline “Sarfaraz Khan’s wife’s emotional reaction from stands after he scores 1st runs is priceless”. His wife name is Romana, who jumped and clapped out of happiness when she saw her husband scored his first runs in International Cricket for India. The incident took place in Niranjan Shah Stadium, Rajkot for the IND vs ENG match. Also, Times of India posted about this on Feb 15, 2024 with the headline “Sarfaraz Khan hugs teary-eyed wife after getting India debut cap”.

D-Intent’s Fact-Checking Results:


Influencers are circulating images of Sarfaraz Khan’s wife with false clickbait claims without verifying. Images of test debutant Sarfaraz Khan and his family are circulated, claiming that his father & mother watched him playing his debut innings from the pavilion during IND vs ENG. The woman is, in actuality, Sarfaraz Khan’s wife rather than his mother.  


Fact : Fact is that the woman is Sarfaraz Khan’s wife, not his mother.
