Joe Root-Virat Kohli: Joe Root rang the alarm bell for Virat Kohli, scored a record equal to two consecutive centuries in Tests

New Delhi: Former England captain Joe Root has been in excellent form in the ongoing home Test series against New Zealand. Root has scored his second consecutive century in the series. Along with this, Virat Kohli also equaled the centuries of Steve Smith in Root Test cricket. It was Root’s 27th century in Test cricket. Apart from this, Virat Kohli and Australian batsman Steve have also scored 27-27 centuries in this format.

In such a situation, if Root had remained in his form, then he would definitely leave these two batsmen behind in the matter of centuries. Root achieved this feat in his 119th match. On the third day of the second Test against New Zealand, Root returned to the pavilion after playing an unbeaten innings of 163 runs in 200 balls.
