The Indian opening batsman, KL Rahul has been a star in the England Test series. His performance has boosted the visitors in such a way that they are on the top. Since most of the batsmen failed to score at the Trent Bridge Test, KL Rahul has been the pillar of support for the team.
Rahul missed his century as he was dismissed at 84 in the first innings of the opening Test game at Nottingham. Fans were elated to see the right-handed batsman anchoring the batting line.
Considering the first innings, KL Rahul was the leading run-scorer for India. The Indian team had hit 278 runs in the first innings in which they led the game by 95 runs. After the rain spoiled the game on day 5, the first test ended up as a disappointment.
The second Test game was a testimony for the Indian players as they witnessed KL Rahul scoring quick runs at the Lord’s cricket ground. Along with Rohit Sharma, he managed to stitch a 126-run partnership on the opening wicket.
After Rohit was dismissed, he joined hands with the captain, Virat Kohli and added 117-run partnership. During the process, he completed his successful sixth Test century scoring 129 runs that includes 12 fours and a six.
Rohit Sharma also batted equally well with 83 runs (including 11 boundaries and a six). At the end, India was all out for 364 as James Anderson picked up a five-wicket haul.
What England Crowd Threw at Rahul? What was Virat Kohli’s Reaction?
