New Delhi: England Test captain Joe Root is proud to play his 100th Test against India. At the same time, he is also excited to join a club of 100 Test players from England. India will play the first Test of a four-match series between England on Friday.
“I am proud to play my 100th Test against India,” the English captain told a pre-Test press conference in Chennai. It would also be good to join a club of 100 Test players from England. ” Many players involved in the club have also been found. It is a matter of pride for a 7- to 8-year-old from Sheffield to play in England and then come to such a benchmark. ”
Notably, Root made his Test debut against India in December 2012. In such a situation, he is very excited to play his 100th Test against India. But Root also believes that he has a lot of hunger for cricket at the moment and will continue to play for the country as long as this hunger lasts.
“This is not the time for my career to end,” Rutte said. I am very hungry to play cricket at the moment and I will play for the country as long as I am hungry. That’s why I’m so excited. For years to come. “”
Root will be the 15th cricketer to play 100 Tests for England
