A sublime 243-ball 130 from Alastair Cook - his 30th Test ton - helped England claim a moral victory by drawing the first Test against India in Rajkot on Sunday.Cook managed just 21 in the first innings but he made amends in the second innings as England looked to stretch their 49-run lead quickly. The left-hander joined forces with debutant, Haseeb Hameed, who had outpaced him on the fourth day.The duo added a 180-run opening stand that saw the visitors stretch their lead to 229 before Hameed finally departed after amassing a classy 82 from 177 balls, which is the highest score for an England teenager. The partnership is the second-most by any opening pair in their teams second innings of a Test in India.Indias spinners and R Ashwin in particular stifled Englands attacking intentions by extracting extra turn from an aging Rajkot surface. Ashwin conceded just 31 runs in 13.3 overs that he bowled. He succeeded in prolonging Englands decision to declare as they pushed to stretch their lead to the 300-run mark.Joe Root was the second England batsman to fall, before Ashwin claimed Cook in the 74th over. England, at that stage, had stretched the lead to 309. Cook had hit 13 fours in his ton, which is his fifth Test hundred in India, the most by a visiting batsman. He went past Everton Weekes, Clive Lloyd and Hashim Amla who made four centuries each in the country. He also bettered Jacques Kallis eight centuries to register most hundreds by a visiting batsman in Asia. In the process he also became the fourth overseas player to score 1000 runs in India.Indias batsmen had 49 overs on the final day to negotiate and they struggled from the onset after losing opener Gautam Gambhir for a duck in the second over. First-innings centurions, Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara, added 47 runs for the second wicket but they too failed to finish the job. India lost the duo six-overs apart and Ajinkya Rahane soon after. It took a 47-run stand between Ashwin and Virat Kohli to bail their side out of trouble. Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja eventually negotiated the final ten overs that completed the draw.Really tough five days, good toss to win. In India if you score 530, youre always in the game. Good cricket wicket, Cook said. Relentless with the ball, we didnt let India score too quickly. To keep them to 480, we did well. The way Has (Hameed) played was brilliant. Wanted to make them score something they couldnt get. Flat for the first three days, and then turned more and more. He (Hameed) looked the real deal in the first innings, we certainly found a batsman there, he certainly looks a good un. Adil stepped up another level. Cheap Carlos Baerga Jersey .

Aduriz headed home Markel Susaetas cross in the sixth minute to open the scoring at San Mames Stadium.

Daniil Kvyat feels his drive to 15th was the maximum he could have hoped for in Germany and two steps forward after his devastating end of qualifying a day earlier.Kvyat looked a broken figure on Saturday after qualifying 19th at Hockenheim, saying his current career slump seemed never ending. The Russian driver has scored just two points since being demoted from Red Bull to Toro Rosso ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix.On Sunday a solid drive saw him recover to 15th, one place behind teammate Carlos Sainz. That result came after receiving words of encouragement on the grid from both Red Bull consultant Helmut Marko and team boss Christian Horner.Speaking about his race, Kvyat said: I felt that many people who know me saw I was not myself these last few weeks, also Christian. I dont need anyone to be sorry for me or anything but I think everyone has these points in life. For sure, [qualifying] was a low poinnt.dddddddddddd But already I felt like I took not one but two steps forward.When asked if he felt he had got the best from the car, he replied: Exactly, I felt I got absolutely the maximum out of it. It was positive on that note. Nothing could have been done better today from outside, so its quite positive.Kvyay says the ke ' ' '
