India finish Day 1 warmup at 306/9

Durham, July 20: Stand-in wicketkeeper KL Rahul’s century and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja’s half-century were the highlights of the first day of the Indian Test team’s warm-up against County Select XI as the visiting side, captained by Rohit Sharma in the absence of injured Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane, went to stumps at 306 for nine.
The Indians, who won the toss and had elected to bat, lost the wickets of openers Rohit Sharma (9) and Mayank Agarwal (28) before the team could reach 50.
Rahul walked in to bat at No. 5 and reeled off boundaries hitting 11 fours and a six before adding 127 runs with Jadeja for the fourth wicket.
