The opening duo of Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul helped team India in getting off to a decent total in the initial stages of their innings. While they could only contribute scores of 44 and 36 respectively, the level of aggression and the intent which the duo exhibited while taking on the English attack perhaps stole the show for the Indian team.
