Ajinkya Rahane has reached his century on Day one of the second Test between India and England at Lord’s. Rahane had walked in a tough situation and has batted with great composure on a track that has had all the tricks for the fast-bowlers. Rahane then had a good partnership with Bhuvneshwar Kumar to take India past 200.

India had gone into tea at 140 for six. After they returned, they lost Binny. But since then, Bhuvneshwar Kumar had fought hard with Rahane and has kept England at bay. On this green surface, it is important for Rahane to concentrate and leave deliveries outside the off-stump. And, he has done just that.
