England skipper Joe Root on Saturday became the first batsman to score a double hundred in his 100th Test appearance. Root came dancing down the track and lofted a Ravichandran Ashwin delivery over long-on to reach this incredible milestone with a six on day two of the first Test in Chennai. Root has been in scintillating form in the last few weeks and has now scored 150-plus scores in each of the three Tests he has played this year. This was Root’s fifth double hundred of his Test career and third as a skipper. His red-hot form has seen him score two double hundreds in his last three Tests, along with a score of 186.
