India had suffered a crushing defeat by 227 runs in the match. Joe Root was the Man of the Match in the match. “England captain Joe Root is a very good batsman, but I don’t think he is the best batsman in the world,” Sunil Gavaskar said on the Star Sports show.

Root is a little lower than the rest of the three batsmen,” says Virat Kohli, Steve Smith, Kane Williamson and Joe Root in the list of four great batsmen in the world.

“The most important thing in Joe Root’s double century in Chennai was that he was a very confucian from the beginning and he was very positive about the game as well,” Gavaskar said. When he was on the front, he was finishing the turn and when he was behind, he was deciding he had room to cut or pull the ball.”
