Cricket has seen 2 pretty outstanding debuts recently with Dhawan and Rutherford. Rutherford played against the world's 2nd best fielding their no.1 attack while Australia, you feel, were down Pattinson from our strongest attack. Judging by our own 1st innings score you can't say the team's performance was unduly effected by the homework scandal either.
In the end his score, and partnership with Vijay, propped India's immense 1st innings and was half the flag pole too. All this on debut and what a strike rate. Stunning effort. Congratulations to him though I wish he saved it up for another opponent.
EDIT: Forgot about Swanny missing for England.
