The former Test captain of England has been in excellent form for the past few years, and in the currently taking place fifth Test match between India and England at Edgebaston, which has been rescheduled, he has continued his good form by scoring another century for his team while chasing the enormous target of 378 runs set by the Indian team.

On Day 5 of the ongoing fifth Test match between England and India at Edgbaston, the 31-year-old hit the three-figure mark. Among current cricketers, Root currently leads the league in Test hundreds.

Recently, Root has been having a great run. He has now scored the most centuries by a batter in 2022 with his fifth century in a Test match. In the run-chase, he required just 136 balls to reach his record-breaking century.

Joe Root is miles ahead of the other three in the “fab 4 of cricket,” which also includes Virat Kohli, Kane Williamson, Steve Smith, and Steve Smith. Since 2021 S.D., the former England captain has added 11 centuries to his kitty, while the other three have each contributed just one century.

Root became the first active cricketer to reach 10,000 Test runs earlier this year. After Alastair Cook, he is the second Englishman to surpass the 10,000-run mark (12,474). Others who have accomplished this feat include Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, Jacques Kallis, Rahul Dravid, Cook, Kumar Sangakkara, Brian Lara, S Chanderpaul, Mahela Jayawardene, Allan Border, Steve Waugh, Sunil Gavaskar, and Younis Khan.
