MUMBAI: The runs from openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma were one of the crucial factors in India gaining a 2-1 lead in the 2021 Test series against England, which was postponed for July this year due to fears of a Covid-19 outbreak in the visitors camp.Sharma was India's top run-getter, amassing 368 runs in four matches, including a superb 127 in the second innings of the fourth Test at The Oval, aside from fifties at Lords and Headingley.Rahul, on the other hand, made 315 runs in the first innings at Lords, a remarkable 129, making him one of the key architects of a great win.However, as Sharma returns to England with captaincy responsibilities in mind, Rahul is unable to play the Edgbaston Test due to a right groin injury, putting young Shubman Gill in the mix.
