England captain Joe Root has been in unbelievable touch this year. After performing exceptionally well with the willow in the subcontinent, Root has continued his fine at home. The right-handed batsman registered his third century of the series against the Indian cricket team yesterday at Headingley.


Joe has been unstoppable against the Indian cricket team.

Back in 2016, during the ICC T20 World Cup event, former England cricket team all-rounder Andrew Flintoff had commented on Virat Kohli’s performances. Here’s what Flintoff had to say back then:


“At this rate Virat Kohli will be as good as Joe Root one day ! Not sure who England will meet in the final now !”

Soon, Amitabh Bachchan gave a reply to the England captain. Here’s what the Bollywood Superstar wrote:

“Root who ? जड़ से उखाड़ देंगे Root ko ..!!!”

Many fans would remember that the England cricket team had toured India earlier this year, where skipper Joe Root’s century helped the England cricket team defeat the Indian cricket team in the Test series opener. Soon after the England cricket team defeated the Indian cricket team, Andrew Flintoff preferred to give a reply to Bachchan’s five-year-old tweet.

“With the greatest respect, this aged well,” Flintoff replied.
