The right-handed Indian batsman deliberated the importance Test matches have had in his life, a format that not his father and coach but he wanted to play for India. Besides, Rahul was humble enough to take the onus on himself when he was dropped from the Test side following his poor performance. He is elated to come back ferociously after two years and mentioned that the ton at Lord’s would always feel special.
