Root said this in praise

Joe Root said that I am speechless. This is one of the best innings we have seen so far. I have watched a lot of cricket. Played and batted with many great players but today was really special. The concentration, determination and skill he displayed against this attack and on this pitch was superb. The former England captain said that it is not easy for a foreign batsman to come to the subcontinent and make an impact.

Joe Root said that to be honest, it is like a ‘masterclass’ in terms of the way to bat in these conditions. This innings is amazing for a foreign batsman who has not played on such pitches and who is returning to the team after recovering from a serious injury. Ollie Pope was ruled out of the team due to a serious shoulder injury during the Ashes series against Australia in June. He returned to the team on the India tour. He is in excellent form and is present at the crease after scoring 148 runs.

Ollie Pope performed brilliantly for England in the second innings. He scored the fifth century of his career. Jack Crowley scored 31 runs, Ben Duckett scored 47 runs. Ben Fox scored 34 runs. Rehan Ahmed is present at the crease after scoring 16 runs. England has scored 316 runs at the loss of 6 wickets in the second innings and thus England’s total lead has become 126 runs.
