In the Test match against England and New Zealand, England won the first match of this series by defeating New Zealand by 5 wickets and took the lead in the series. The hero of England’s victory in this match was Joe Root, who gave a brilliant batting performance on a pitch looking difficult for the batsmen.
Joe Root played an unbeaten inning of 115 runs and with 5 wickets remaining, led the team to victory. Joe Root hit 12 fours in these innings. This innings of Joe Root is also very special in other respects because due to this innings, he has achieved the feat of completing 10000 runs in Test cricket.
He also equalled Alastair Cook. Cook also did 1000 runs at the age of 31 years and 157 days and it is a matter of coincidence that Joe Root also did this work at the same age. The cricket world praised him a lot for setting this record by Joe Root.
During this historic innings, Joe Root showed some magic on the field which has become a topic of discussion among the fans and the fans are very surprised to see its video. When Joe Root was playing unbeaten on 87, he did this astonishing act.
He was standing at the non-striker’s end in Jameson’s over and during that time he put his bat on the pitch without any support and that too for several seconds. Seeing this, the fans were quite surprised that there is no magic in their bat. The same fan also said that Shane Warne’s spirit is wandering in the Lord’s ground.
