"The Indian team can't complain that they were not given enough time to prepare".
Jimmy Anderson remains the top bowler in the world and has become the first England player to exceed 900 points in the ICC rankings since Ian Botham in 1980. Their bowlers were relentless with the ball. "And that's a pleasing thing for us - we still had other options that we didn't have to turn to".
On the face of it, Rashid didn't seem to mind too much.
With the overcast conditions in both of India's innings ideal for swing bowling, Rashid was nearly as much of a spectator as any member of the crowd at "the home of cricket" as the tourists were dismissed for 107 and 130, with James Anderson, England's all-time leading Test wicket-taker, returning match figures of nine for 43.
And yet, who knows what Rashid was really thinking as he made his way back to the England dressing room.
After the 2nd Day of the Test, his help for the ground staff was appreciated by Lord's Cricket Ground management, who in a tweet, wrote, "Not only has he been training with @MCCYC4L recently & but he has also been lending a helping hand to our Groundstaff!"
And yet, this was hardly a contest to convince him that he has been missing out in sacking off the long-form game - particularly when you consider the way in which the County Championship season is divided, with so many games falling in the fickle early-season months of April and May, when legspinners are unlikely to be in high demand.

Ex-England captain Michael Vaughan on TMS: "India have all the problems, and England's seam bowling is up there with the best we have seen from them". "Back is one thing that can be very tricky when it goes off". Play on a cloudy day at Lord's, though, or a sweltering one in Kolkata, and the essence of the contest is inverted. "What we want for him is to bring that confidence to the red-ball game".
"In their last 10 overseas innings, India have topped 250 only twice, and on both those occasions, Virat made a big hundred".
With the rain threat looming large over the remainder of the game, India needed to bat for survival. "You can only do what you're asked to do when you get the opportunity".
