Joe Root

In the 5-match Test series against India, the bat of England team’s most experienced player Joe Root appeared completely silent in the first three matches. The biggest reason behind this was said to be Root’s playing aggressively, contrary to his natural game. In the Ranchi Test, Root once again appeared in his old style and along with playing an unbeaten inning of 122 runs, he also helped in putting his team in a strong position. After the second day of the fourth Test, Root also responded to the criticism regarding baseball strategy and said that we have a different view on it.

Sometimes it’s okay to be more aggressive

England had to face crushing defeats in two consecutive matches after the Hyderabad Test match. The English team had to face a crushing defeat of 434 runs in the Rajkot Test and after this the baseball strategy also started being criticized. Root now responded to all this and said in his statement that this is not a strategy that makes us arrogant. The word baseball is used a lot but that is your word. At the same time, it is not seen that way at all. Our goal as a team is to get the best out of each other. Although this strategy is not always correct, we are continuously improving it. I was waiting for this century for a long time because being a senior player and when you have played a lot here, you want to contribute to the team’s victory. Root also praised Shoaib Bashir, who performed brilliantly with the ball in the second day’s play and has taken 4 wickets so far.

Root became the player to score most Test centuries against India

While Joe Root scored the 31st century of his Test career in the Ranchi Test, he has now also become the player who has scored the most number of centuries in the history of Test cricket against India. Root has a total of 10 centuries in his name in Test cricket against India, while he has also become the player who has played the joint highest number of innings of 50 plus runs against India.
