However, the visitors didn’t feel the void of the senior players as the debutants made the most out of the opportunities provided to them and impressed the who’s who of the cricket fraternity.

The main reason why Rahul Dravid will remain one of my favourite sportspersons of all time – never in the spotlight, but always gets the work done. https://t.co/GwbnyGrIfV
