England Test team captain Joe Root scored a brilliant century in the first innings of the first Test match of the 4 match series against India (England vs England). This is the 20th century of Root’s test career. Root is playing his seventh Test match in India.
Root completed a century from 164 balls (Joe Root Century). He hit 12 fours during this period. During this, Root has partnered more than 150 runs for the third wicket with opener Dom Sibley. As soon as Root’s century was over, there was an influx of people congratulating him on social media. Many legends including former Indian cricket team batsman VVS Laxman, former spinner Pragyan Ojha and ICC were congratulated.
Root has achieved the feat of playing 100 Tests at the age of 30. He is the youngest English player after Alistair Cook, the former England captain who has scored a century in Test matches. Root has an age and it is expected that he can also break Cook’s record of 161 Test matches.
