Ind vs Eng 1st Test

Published

After marking his 100th Test with a brilliant first-day century, Joe Root has challenged his England team to build on a golden opportunity in the first Test in Chennai, and target a score of “600-700” to really turn the screw on India.

Speaking at the close of an emotional day, Root admitted he had felt the significance of his personal milestone more than he had anticipated; thanks in part to a surprise tribute from his team-mates, including a video of good wishes from every living England cricketer to have reached 100 Tests, as well as what he described as “some really kind words” from his vice-captain, Ben Stokes.

But by the close, Root had brushed aside such sentiment to rack up an unbeaten 128 – his third century in as many Tests following two in Sri Lanka last month – to lay England’s platform in a 200-run partnership with the steadfast Dom Sibley, who was pinned lbw for 87 from what turned out to be the final ball of the day.
