Former India opener Wasim Jaffer on Saturday piled acclaim on Joe Root, saying that the England Test captain is without any assistance conveying the group's batting on his shoulders.
Jaffer tweeted, “Joe Root is such a joy to watch. Looks easy on the eyes but scores some tough runs. One of the best players of spin, and currently the best among usual suspects in Kohli, Smith and Williamson. What a year he’s having, single-handedly carrying the English batting.”
Root scored 62 in the first innings of the continuous second Ashes Test at the Adelaide Oval. Along the course of this innings, the England captain went past 1,600 Test runs in 2021.
Assuming Root figures out how to score 1,789 runs in 2021, then, at that point, he would turn into the hitter to enroll the most Test runs in a solitary calendar year
Dawid Malan and Root had guaranteed that England don't lose ay wicket in the initial meeting on Day 3 of the day-night Test on Saturday.
