Indian pacers, who wrote a memorable script for the Lords victory, bowled too many boundary balls and the English duo were quick to pick them. The pitch appears to have loosened considerably for the batsman after India collapsed to 78 on the first day. Indian bowlers have not been able to send Root back to the pavilion easily in the series and the skipper scored runs whenever he want to. He seems to be in form and reached his 51 fifty of 57 balls with a impressive back foot punch through the covers.Also Read- IPL 2021: Pandya brothers Kunal and Hardik join Mumbai Indian camp in Abu Dhabi

Virat Kohli-led India stormed to a 157-run win over England on the final day of the fourth Test to register only their second Test win at the Oval and take a 2-1 unbeatable lead in the five-match series on Monday. Innings defeat in Leeds seems like a distant memory now, as Jasprit Bumrah inspired India to put on an energetic performance and reclaim the series lead with a convincing 157-run win over England on the final day of the Oval Test. England was bowled out for 210 in pursuit of a target of 368 on the final day, succumbing to the constant pressure built up by the Indian bowlers. The visitors recorded only their 2-test win at the Oval and the first after the historic victory in 1971 under Ajit Wadekar.Chasing a daunting victory target of 368, the hosts made a good start with a century opening partnership before India advanced and restricted England's scoring rate with some disciplined bowling. Shardul Thakur made India's first breakthrough by eliminating Rory Burns (50), a ball after hitting half a century and brought up 100-run partnership for the first wicketThe momentum of the match turned to India's way when Dawid Malan was run out for 5 with about 30 minutes before the morning session, trying to make a quick single with Haseeb Hamid. Hamid (63), who got a reprieve on 56 when Mohammed Siraj dropped catch, was the next batsman to go after Jadeja hit the rough patch as the ball spun past his bat to hit the off-stump.Also Read- England vs India, 2nd Test: India Win Thriller At Lord's To Take 1-0 Series Lead vs England Bumrah produced a sensational spell in the 2nd session Jasprit Bumrah removed Olli Pop (2) and Jonny Bairstow (0) in back-to-back overs to turn match in India's favor.

Root-Woakes delay India's victory Joe Root and Chris Woakes, the last English batting player, played some shots during a 35-run seventh-wicket stand to delay India's victory before the England captain dragged a innocuous delivery of Thakur to his stumps to go for 36 and end his team's faint hopes of an unlikely win.

Former Australia captain Ricky Bunting questioned Joe Root's comments about English bowlers during the Ashes and said that as the captain of the traveling team, it was his responsibility to make changes if necessary.Former Australia captain Ricky Bunting questioned Joe Root's comments about english bowlers during the Ashes and said that as the captain of the traveling team, it was his responsibility to make changes if necessary.After a crushing nine-wicket defeat in Brisbane's opener, England fell to the second Test by 275 runs in Adelaide on Monday to track the five-game streak 2-0.After the pink ball test, Root said his players needed to play more and "be braver."Australia's massive 275-round win gave Australia a 2-0 lead in the #Ashes series as the team headed to Melbourne."When I heard this, I almost fell out of my seat," Bunting told Cricket Australia. "So it's their job to take their place? So why are you the captain?" he said.“If you can't influence bowlers at the length required to throw them, what do you do on the court?"Joe Root can go back and say whatever he wants, but if you're the captain, you have to be able to understand that bowlers aren't bowling where you want them to. That's what the captain is all about."Ponting also noted that the English bowling attack was the best when Root left the field with a thigh injury and the captain was handed over to Ben Stokes."The interesting thing for me is that when he gave the whole game, Joe Root wasn't on the field," Ponting said."From day four, when they met on the field before the match started, Stokes took charge of the team, and that was the only time in the game that he took the ball."The third Ash Test will take place from December 26-30 at Melbourne Cricket Ground.For the previous Article - Virat vs BCCI: We'll deal with it, says Ganguly
