KL Rahul Eyes Epic Double at Lord's

India vs England Live Score, Ind vs Eng 2nd Test Match Latest Updates:

Team India’s opener KL Rahul was axed from the Test side after miserable performances in 2019. Although he was one of the first names to be picked for the white ball squad, he had fallen behind in the pecking order for the Test side. However, he was persisted with by the management and was given the backing by Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri. Now it seems as if we are seeing the best of KL Rahul in Test cricket.

He impressed in the first Test at Nottingham in difficult conditions, but missed out on a century. However, after a cautious start, he stepped up and played the perfect Test innings to notch up a ton and get his name registered on the Lord’s Honour’s board. This was the sixth century in his career and perhaps his best effort.

The innings, though, was set up by Rohit. Rohit had been in excellent touch and was the dominant partner in a first-wicket stand of 126 with KL Rahul — the first by an overseas opening pair in a Test in England since 2016, when Sri Lanka’s Dimuth Karunaratne and Kaushal Silva achieved a similar feat at Lord’s.
