Joe Root’s remarkable start to 2021 continued in Chennai as the England skipper struck a third consecutive ton to mark his 100th Test match with a knock for the ages. Root finished Day 1 on 128*, following scores of 228 and 186 vs SL, and the internet was short of words for the England legend.
Brilliant knock from English Captain!👏
