Ajinkya Rahane and Parthiv Patel (95), in for the injured Sachin Tendulkar, scored 82 for the first wicket to build India a useful platform.

July 2, 2011Batting superstar Sachin Tendulkar, on the verge of an unprecedented 100th international century, returned Saturday to a strong Indian squad for the upcoming Test series in England. Gautam Gambhir and Abhinav Mukund will open the innings for India in the first two tests. Sehwag who is undergoing rehabilitation following a shoulder surgery will join the squad as the 17th member after a fortnight.
