KL Rahul has grabbed with both hands the opportunity to open the innings alongside Rohit Sharma in the Test series opener against England. The right-hander has shelved his customary flamboyance to bide his time at the crease, although the gloss of his cover drives has remained intact. As Stuart Broad went searching for swing and dished out a juicy half-volley, Rahul needed no second invitation to unfurl the textbook gem, leaning into the frontfoot push and collecting four mesmerizing runs.
