Joe Root became the first captain after 84 years to register a hat-trick of 150-plus scores in Test cricket. Legendary Australian Captain Don Bradman was the first captain to notch up three successive 150-plus scores in Test cricket way back in 1937.
Root reached the milestone on Day 2 of the India vs England first Test match in Chennai. What made the milestone more remarkable was the fact that it came on Root’s 100th Test match.
He also became the first player in the history of test cricket to score a double ton in 100th match.
