Bangla Hunt Desk: England captain Joe Root is in dream form at the moment. He has been running baskets in every Test match. Root has scored centuries in three consecutive Tests, including two double centuries. This devastating form of the route is the plight of the opposition bowlers. Root set an example by playing in his 100th Test match against India. He surpassed many legends by scoring a double century in his 100th Test match.
This great form of Root and his double century against India is a direct insult to India’s legendary Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan. In a tweet in 2016, Amitabh Bachchan wrote that Root should be uprooted from the summit. And this time the former England captain Andrew Flintoff stabbed Amitabh Bachchan by highlighting that tweet.

Virat Kohli led India to the semifinals of the 2016 T20 World Cup with a great innings of 82 off 51 balls against Australia. Then former England captain Joe Root wrote that if Virat continues to play like this, one day Virat will be a great cricketer like Root. In response to Flintoff’s tweet, Amitabh Bachchan wrote, Who is Root? I will uproot the root.
With the greatest respect, this aged well https://t.co/sjhs7HGT1d

Although he did not respond to Amitabh Bachchan’s tweet that day, Flintoff pulled out that tweet five years ago after Joe Root scored 200 in the first Test against India and wrote, “Honestly, it’s been great.”
