IND vs ENG: ‘Batsmen hit the spot, it takes a century’, former cricketers praised KL Rahul

The first day of the Lord’s Test match was entirely in the name of KL Rahul. KL Rahul has scored 127 runs and is not out yet, depending on his century, Team India have scored 273 runs for three wickets till the end of the first day. KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma put together a good start for Team India and both added 126 runs for the first wicket. Rahul was dismissed for 84 in the first innings of the Nottingham Test and was dismissed for 16 by the Lord’s, but it was compensated by the Lord’s. After Shubhaman Gill and Mayank Agarwal were injured, KL Rahul got a chance at playing XI and he took full advantage of the opportunity. Former cricketers hailed Rahul’s innings.

Former India fast bowler RP Singh wrote on Twitter, “Batsman hit the spot, KL Rahul has scored a century. He should not have played the first two Tests against England, but now he has more names in the series. In fact, Shubman Gill was ruled out of the series due to injury and Mayank Agarwal was unable to play in the first Test due to injury. Thus, Rahul was allowed to open the innings with Rohit in the first Test and he did not let this opportunity pass.

The manner in which Rahul played in the first Test, despite Mayank’s return, has not been dropped from the team and the confidence of the captain and team management has not been proved to be wrong. VVS Laxman hopes that Rahul will turn this innings into an even bigger innings.

Virender Sehwag said Rahul played well as long as he was in the crease and then he accelerated and scored a spectacular century.

India seems to be in a very strong position at the moment. Ajinkya Rahane is in the crease with Rahul after scoring a run. Apart from Rohit and Rahul, captain Virat Kohli played useful innings of 42 runs.
