Rahul struck an incredible century in the first innings, studded with 11 fours and a six. He did not fare well in the last England series, but this hundred will give a selection headache to the management.
Indian bowlers, especially Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Siraj, were too hot for the English side. Hameed was the standout performer and scored a fighting 112 as wickets tumbled on the other end.
The all-rounder has been in fine batting form over the last couple of years. He got an ample amount of batting time in the middle in both innings. He made two half-centuries which came in quick time, and also picked up a wicket.
