(Video) Joe Root falls prey to Adil Rashid’s hypnotic drift

Bowling at his resourceful best in The Hundred’s clash between Trent Rockets and Northern Superchargers, Adil Rashid purchased a significant amount of drift to get the better of Joe Root for a golden duck. The leg-spinner, plying his trade for the Superchargers, received a dolly of a return catch as Root got done in by the drift and ended up closing his bat face a smidgen too early.

Interestingly, it was also the first ball Root has ever faced from Rashid in competitive cricket. Rashid returned classy figures of 2/27, but Alex Hales provided the star turn as the Rockets registered a pulsating win.
