England captain Joe Root failed in first test as he scored 15 runs in 1st innings but came good in 2nd innings where he scored 51 runs. However he continued his old bad habit not to convert his 50’s into hundred. That’s why even he have average of 53 plus but if we look his hundred telly then we find their is only 13 hundred’s. Which is quit less than his competitor’s Virat Kohli (19) and Steve smith (21).
