Why were England confident that Joe Root would score a century with the bat?

IND Vs ENG: England’s star batsman Joe Root saved England’s boat from sinking by playing an unbeaten innings of 106 runs on the first day of the Ranchi Test. For the first time in the series, Joe Root scored a century. Before this game, Root averaged around 12 runs in three games. But the England team backed Root and the star batsman didn’t disappoint either. England opener Jack Crowley says Joe Root played an excellent innings in Ranchi.

England won the toss and batted first, losing 5 wickets for a score of 112. However, Root played an unbeaten 106 innings to keep the ball at one end and at the end of the day’s play England reached 302 runs for a loss of 7 wickets. Jack Crowley hopes that Joe Root will be able to further increase England’s score on day two.

The game is in a crucial situation

Jack Crowley said: “We knew Joe Root’s bat would definitely hit big at some point in this series.” That was a big score left. Joe Root is our best player. Root achieves great success because he works harder than others. This is a great innings. Apart from Root, no one else could have played that innings. Root has looked after the team through difficult times. We needed it. For 112 runs, only 5 wickets had fallen. But Root played a big innings when the team needed it most. We’re down 2-1 in the series.”

Let us tell you that India took a 2-1 lead in this series by winning the second and third Tests. In Ranchi too, India seemed to have the upper hand in the first two sessions of the first day. But Root kept England in the game. The second day can prove to be very crucial for both teams.
