London: India and England team are clashing in the second test. In this test being played at the historic Lord’s ground in London, England won the toss and elected to bowl first. England expected the bowlers to take early wickets and give them a good start. But the Indian opening pair of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul dashed the plans of the English bowlers. Both made a brilliant century partnership for the first wicket. The England camp had to wait for 44 overs to get the first wicket.
Hitman and Rahul won hearts
Openers Rohit and Rahul shared a 97-run partnership in the first Test innings played in Nottingham. Together they added 37 runs in the second innings. At the same time, when Rohit and Rahul came out to bat in London, they managed to win hearts once. In the first innings of the Lord’s Test, both of them collected runs with a little care in the beginning. However, Rohit, popularly known as Hitman, gained momentum in some time. On the other hand, Rahul supported Rohit very well. Both put on 126 runs for the first wicket. This partnership was broken after Rohit’s innings of 83 runs. He was bowled by James Anderson.
Got a new opening pair?
Team India has tried many players in Tests over the years. After Shubman Gill’s injury, Rahul along with Rohit has been given a chance to open the innings in England. So far both are seen living up to the expectations of the team management. In such a situation, the discussion has started that the Indian Test team has found a reliable new pair, which was long sought after. However, it is also being said that it is too early to say anything about the pairing of Rohit and Rahul and it would be better to judge both after the series is over.
First century partnership since 2017
The pair of Rohit and Rahul have made a special achievement by doing this partnership. Let us tell you that this is the first century partnership of Indian openers abroad after 2017. At the same time, when it comes to the performance of the Indian opening pair in the Army (SENA) country in the last 10 years, the performance of Rohit and Rahul is the best. Barring these two, no Indian opening pair could make a century partnership in this period. It is known that the army countries – South Africa, England, New Zealand and Australia are called.
