Joe Root played an unbeaten knock of 115 runs in the second innings to help England chase down 277 against New Zealand in the Lord’s Test in London to go 1-0 up in the three-match series. England were in a spot of bother at 69/4, but Root, Ben Stokes and Ben Foakes battled it out, guiding the hosts to a five-wicket win. Along the course of his innings, Root notched up the landmark of 10,000 Test runs and he is the joint-youngest with Alastair Cook to achieve the coveted milestone. Watch him achieve the milestone with a flick for a brace.
“He is loved by his teammates and he is loved by every England cricket fan!” â¤ï¸
