On the third day, English captain Joe Root turned the tide of the game completely after flattening a tremendous century. He played a brilliant unbeaten 180-run beat to propel England, not only to overtake India’s 364 but also to take a 27-run lead.
Former English Opener Michael Atherton praise for Root’s incredible effort with the willow tree. He said Root received this reward for his remarkable work during the confinement.
‘I think it’s a reward for incredible work he’s done. It comes at a time when he was 29 and already had a fantastic career. But it only gave him the opportunity to rest, where he said: ‘I have the second half of my career, and I can go from a very, very good player to one of the greatest’. says Atherton as quoted by Sky Sports.
Atherton revealed that Root sat with the team analyst and worked on his dismissals of the past five years, which improved his technique to help his defense.
“He asked the analyst to send him every dismissal of the last five years or so, looked at it carefully and tried to find out where he could go from. He reaps the fruits of it. He has now made a slight technical adjustment, with the back leg straight back. It made him less vulnerable to the lbw when the ball was straight, ” Atherton added.
