Meanwhile, the fans saw an unbelievable scene on the ground when England’s star batter Joe Root came to bat. Root who is known to play defensive cricket launched some cracking shots with his bat and the most amazing was his reverse sweep which went for a six against the Australian pacer Scott Boland.
