India vs England 1st Test – Joe Root


“We’ve executed the gameplan brilliantly and to finish in the manner we have done today is really pleasing”

Joe Root has hailed the work ethic of his England side while warning that they must continue to improve after taking a 1-0 lead in the four-Test series in Chennai. England enjoyed a “fantastic five days” to inflict India’s first defeat at home since 2017, with Root leading from the front in his 100th Test, but he was keen to focus on maintaining the high standards after wrapping up victory with time to spare on the final afternoon.

Root’s first-innings double-hundred set the tone, and there were contributions from Dom Sibley and Ben Stokes with the bat, and the bowlers then shared the wickets around in both innings to complete one of England’s most memorable overseas victories. Criticism of England’s indecisive approach with the bat after tea on day four melted away as they claimed five wickets in the morning session – led by an expert spell of reverse swing from James Anderson – on the way to their first win in India since 2012.
