Joe Root all set to break Sachin Tendulkar’s historic record in 1st IND vs ENG Test


India and England will face each other in a five-match Test series starting on January 25 with the first Test to be played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. Joe Root is ready to break one of the prestigious records of the great Sachin Tendulkar in the series starting on Thursday. Joe Root has been one of the greatest Test cricketers for England in the last decade and has always performed in the longer format with a compelling average.

Joe Root needs only 10 runs to surpass Sachin Tendulkar and become the highest run-getter in Test matches between India and England. His last trip to India was a memorable one with the bat even though England lost the series 3-1 against India. When England last toured India in 2021 for a Test series, Joe Root emerged as the top run-getter in the series where he amassed 368 runs in eight innings at an average of 46. He smashed a double hundred in the very first match of the series scoring 218 off 377 deliveries.

Joe Root has a terrific record against India in Test cricket and currently stands second in terms of runs scored in Test matches between India and England. Sachin Tendulkar currently holds the record between the two nations as he has amassed 2535 runs against England in Test cricket whereas Joe Root currently stands at 2526 runs against India.

Joe Root has a good record in Tests in Indian conditions amassing 952 runs in 10 matches at an average of 50.1o which also includes two centuries. He is most likely to break Sachin’s record in the first Test itself which will be played in Hyderabad. The following four Tests in the series will be played at Vishakhapatnam, Rajkot, Ranchi, and Dharamsala.
