England and India are fighting it out in a high-profile Test series wherein the visiting side is 1-0 up in the series. Though visitors are leading the series at the current moment, English skipper Joe Root is the man who has owned the series so far. Root appears to be in form of his life and has already smashed three tons in three Tests so far.

In the same light of events, an old tweet from Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan is doing rounds on the internet. The incident dates back to 2016 when Indian skipper Virat Kohli played a terrific inning of 82* off 51 in Mohali to seal India’s semifinal spot in the T20 World Cup.

In the same sequence, former English cricketer Andrew Flintoff added that if Kohli goes by this pace, one day he will be equal to that of Joe Root. “At this rate @imVkohli will be as good as @root66 one day! Not sure who @englandcricket will meet in the final now!” he tweeted.

On the same tweet, Amitabh Bacchan replied, “Root who? जड़ से उखाड़ देंगे Root ko! (Root who? We will uproot him).”

Talking in the current context, fans want that Bollywood megastar should remove his tweet as Root is wreaking havoc on the Indian team. The tweet comes under scrutiny more when Kohli and his men were bowled out cheaply for just 78 runs in the first innings of the third Test at Leeds.

After which, Joe Root and company posted a massive 432 runs on the board. While England went on to breach the 400-run mark, it was Root’s century that became substantial in being the base of these runs. The tweet was also made in comparison with Virat Kohli who is currently struggling with his form. A century from Kohli is long-awaited and it remains to be seen when he would be able to treat fans with one. He last scored a century against Bangladesh in 2019 and the drought has continued ever since.
