“Joe Root’s Record-Breaking Century Equals Rohit Sharma’s Feat in Ranchi Test”

Joe Roots Record-Breaking Century

Ranchi: In a spectacular display during the Ranchi Test, England’s captain Joe Root exhibited remarkable prowess while leading his team’s innings. Not only did he score an excellent century against India, but he also etched his name into the record books. As soon as Root reached the century mark, he achieved parity with Indian skipper Rohit Sharma.

Root’s 31st Test century in his career came during the Ranchi Test, where he equaled Rohit Sharma’s tally of 47 international centuries. Both players now share this remarkable milestone.

Among active players, the former Indian captain Virat Kohli leads the pack with an impressive 80 international centuries to his name. Following closely is Australia’s David Warner, who has notched up 49 centuries. Root’s pursuit of Warner’s record seems well within reach, although Kohli’s tally remains a distant target.

Notably, Joe Root’s brilliance extends beyond centuries. He has amassed a staggering 19,000 runs in international cricket, becoming the first English player to achieve this feat. His remarkable journey spans 444 innings.

In the ongoing fourth Test between India and England, the first day’s play concluded with England at 302 runs for 7 wickets. Root remained unbeaten on 106 runs, while Ollie Robinson contributed an unbeaten 31 runs. Meanwhile, India’s debutant bowler Akash Deep made an impact by taking 3 crucial wickets.
