Joe Root is in fantastic form with two double centuries and a century in the last three games he played in the subcontinent. The first Test match against India at Chennai was Joe Root’s 100th Test match. Joe Root scored 218 in the first innings and a quick-fire 40 in the second innings.

Ravindra Jadeja is already ruled out of the entire Test series. Shahbaz Nadeem and Rahul Chahar are already sent back to stand-by players as Axar Patel is fully fit. He might debut in the second Test match. It will be interesting to see Virat Kohli‘s team selection. England has announced their 12 man squad for the second Test with Jos Buttler, James Anderson, Jofra Archer, and Dom Bess ruled out from the second test.
