At the time of Virat Kohli’s last Test century in 2019, Joe Root had only 16 Test centuries, but everything has changed in these two and a half years. Kohli got stuck where he was, while Root went ahead.
Team India missed another chance to win the Test series in England. In the 2018 tour, the Indian team was defeated in the series. This time the Indian team was more close to victory and was ahead 2-1, but after waiting for about 10 months, the situation changed and the series became even. England leveled the series by winning the last Test at Edgbaston and former captain Joe Root played a key role in this. Root, who played a key role in chasing the mammoth score of 378 runs after scoring 142 runs in the second innings, scored the 28th century of his career. With this, he left behind all the legendary batsmen of his counterpart, including Virat Kohli. The situation is such that Kohli, who once scored a century, has not been able to score a single century in the last two and a half years, while Root has scored 12 centuries during this period.
