London: India and England are clashing in the second test. Both the teams face off at the historic Lord’s ground. India scored 364 runs in the first innings, in response to which the England team is batting. England had a poor start in the first innings as they lost two wickets for 23 runs. After this, Captain Joe Root came out to play and he batted again. Root, who remained unbeaten on 48 on Friday on the second day, completed a half-century as soon as it came on Saturday and then scored a century. This is the 22nd century of his Test career.
Root scored a hundred in 200 balls
Joe Root is in great form these days. He scored a half-century in the first innings of the first Test and then scored a century in the second innings after that. At the same time, when Root came out to bat in the first innings of Lord’s, he looked completely in rhythm. He shared an 85-run partnership with Rory Burns for the third wicket and 121 runs with Jonny Bairstow. He scored a hundred in 200 balls with the help of 9 fours and increased the restlessness of the Indian camp. He completed a century after scoring a run in the 82nd over bowled by Jasprit Bumrah.
11th Test century as captain
India had dropped England’s three wickets on the second day, but on the third day, the team had to struggle a lot because of Root. Let us tell you that Root had saved England from faltering in the Nottingham Test as well. Root made this 11th Test century as captain. At the same time, he has scored the seventh century against India. Root made his Test debut in the year 2012. He has scored more than eight and a half thousand runs in 106 test matches.
