Joe Root England batsman believes he should have scored 18 test hundreds and he needs to improve his conversion rate of fifties into Centuries.
Joe Root aims improving his conversion rate
His 2nd success hundreds of the ODI series at Headingley, Joe Root became a man of part.
It was his 13th ODI hundred for England and puts him on top of the Countries all-time list of the one Century makers.
Root has already scored 9 Test centuries and average 54.46 after only 41 Test matches, but he has 13 times out between 71 to 98 runs.
His centuries at Lord’s and here at Headingley were not only a forceful return to form but,were also perfect examples of what he brings to this line up.
Root’s playing of Kuldeep was especially great given the left-arm wrist-spinner had rejected him twice
in the initial 3 balls he had shook the bowling and bowled to Root on this visit, at Old Trafford in the
1st T20 and after that at Trent Bridge in the opening ODI.
His particular play against him in the last two ODIs – for the most part playing back at Lord’s
and afterward forward here in Leeds – was unexpected and was talented after Root noticed his
developments against Kul deep must be crisper and snappier.
When asked how many hundreds he should have scored by now Root replied; probably double if you look at the amount of fifties.
You are always trying to best. Over the last couple of batsman of the month playing very well.
In an ideal world you go and make 17th and 18th into hundreds but it does not work.
There have been a few decent deliveries but basically and mainly it has been batsman error that
needs to be address in practice.
