For a long time, the Indian cricket team was looking for a strong and durable opening pair in Test cricket. Tried many experiments but did not seem to be satisfied, but the attitude has changed in the last three Test innings. It seems that it has now been decided that Rohit Sharma and Lokesh Rahul are the new Indian opening pair. Both of them made a century partnership in the Lord’s Test against England on Thursday and with this made many big records.
Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul batted in contrasting fashion on the second day of the Lord’s Test. On the one hand, Rohit Sharma was seen getting aggressive on the bowlers from time to time, while on the other hand KL Rahul kept his wicket safe. The duo shared a 50-run partnership for the first wicket in 123 balls. While after that completed the century partnership in 198 balls. Before the dismissal of Rohit Sharma (83), the two shared a 126-run partnership for the first wicket.
The wait of four years is over
The century partnership put up by the current Indian opening pair in Test cricket on Thursday is the first century partnership of Indian openers on foreign soil in the last four years. Earlier this amazing was seen in 2017.
69 years later at Lord’s
Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul’s century partnership is the first century partnership in 69 years by an Indian opening pair at Lord’s Cricket Ground. Earlier in 1952, the pair of Pankaj Roy and Vinoo Mankad had done this wonder.
for the first time in the 21st century
This is the first time in the 21st century that an Indian opening pair has scored a century partnership at the most prestigious cricket ground, Lord’s Cricket Ground. The names of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul have been recorded in the pages of history.
Hundred partnership by any opening pair after five years
At the same time, this has proved to be the second century partnership by any opening pair on England soil after August 2016. After August 2016, this feat was done only by the England opening pair of Rory Burns and Dom Sibley in 2020. Rohit-Rahul pair is the first pair to do so in the last five years in foreign pairs.
