KL Rahul was visibly disappointed to be out for 129 off just the second ball he faced against England at Lord’s on Friday.

But at least the opener had the consolation of joining a select group of Indians to have scored a Test century at the ‘home of cricket’ — a list that, surprisingly, does not include batting great Sachin Tendulkar.

Ten India batsmen have now scored 12 Test hundreds between them at Lord’s, with Dilip Vengsarkar achieving the feat three times, each on a separate tour.

India batsmen to have scored a Test hundred at Lord’s (year, player, score):

1952 Vinoo Mankad 184

1979 Gundappa Viswanath 113

1979 Dilip Vengsarkar 103

1982 Dilip Vengsarkar 157

1986 Dilip Vengsarkar 126 no
