“First Virat Kohli, now it’s Joe Root” – Twitter reacts as Joe Root steps down as England captain

Joe Root

After a long and successful stint as the England cricket team’s Test captain, Joe Root has decided to resign from his position, which was made official by the player and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).


Joe Root is counted as one of the greatest captain of this generation, and certainly has proved that. However, a dip in form for England team in overall, has led to the skipper deciding to not continue at the higher post.

England cricket team is going through a very bad patch in the Test cricket from last several months, a proof of which is that, England is currently placed right at the bottom of the World Test Championship 2021-2023 Points Table.


However, Joe Root has still managed to do well for his team, certainly in the last Test series that they played against West Indies, where Root scored 289 runs from 3 matches, which includes 2 hundreds.

Roor has led the England national cricket team to 27 victories, most by an England captain, ahead of Alastair Cook and Sir Andrew Strauss. However, his resignation has led to unbelief among the cricket fraternity and believes that this will ignite him to score more runs.

Fans even compared it to the sudden resignation of the Indian captain Virat Kohli as well.
