78 all out. Sharma, Rahul, and Kohli scored a combined 26 runs. It was even more shocking to see England score 135 runs before losing a wicket. What happened?
Root is in phenomenal form. Three centuries in three matches. Over 500 runs! Reminds me of Alastair Cook's epic Ashes series in which he scored 766 runs. Root has a chance of surpassing that.
One record he'll most likely break:
875 Runs by Root against India in Tests in 2021. These are the third-most runs by any player in a calendar year against an opponent, behind only Don Bradman's 974 against England in 1930 and Clive Lloyd's 903, also against India, in 1983.
They might as well give Root the man of the series award right now.
