(Video) Relive Root’s masterclass as the England run-machine adds mighty feather to his cap

Joe Root has scored his way into the annals of English cricket as he now holds the prestigious record of being their highest run-getter. Root, who captains the Three Lions in the longest format, eclipsed Sir Alistair Cook (15,737 runs) during the ongoing Test against India.

The time is ripe to revel in his 254-run marathon knock that grounded Pakistan to dust when the two sides met at Old Trafford in 2016. It remains his top score to date.
