KL Rahul makes Test case with 101, Ravindra Jadeja hits 75 in warm-up before England Tests


Both Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane were rested for the fixture following fitness concerns

Indians 306 for 9 (Rahul 101 retired out, Jadeja 75, Miles 3-42) vs County Select XI

KL Rahul made his case for a Test return with a polished century on the first day of India’s warm-up fixture against County Select XI in Chester-le-Street. Rahul shook off the rust in what was his first red-ball game since March 2020 and first appearance in any format since undergoing a surgery for acute appendicitis in May earlier this year.
Rahul entered at 107 for 4 in the afternoon session and didn’t budge until he was asked to retire out on 101 in the last session. He forged a 127-run fifth-wicket partnership with Ravindra Jadeja, whose 75 was also central to the Indians’ recovery.
