In what comes as a significant departure from England’s woeful batting trend, the top-order clicked as a unit. This is the first time every member of England’s top four have reached 50 in a single innings since March 2013. While overnight batsmen Rory Burns and Haseeb Hameed perished after raking up the landmarks, Dawid Malan and skipper Joe Root are going great guns as they have stitched a fluent hundred-run partnership to compound India’s misery.
Absolute trademark @root66 😍
His fourth 50+ score of the series 👏
