Joe Root has been dismissed by a number of Indian bowlers in Tests

Joe Root, Six Sports

As India and England prepare for the upcoming 5th Test, Joe Root will be one of the batsmen the Indian team will look to target the most.

Jasprit Bumrah is the bowler who has given Root nightmares in Tests with his bowling.

Moreover, Bumrah has sent back Root six times in Tests.

Other bowlers who have sent back former England to the hut are India’s spin twins, Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin.

They have done this 5 times.

In the recent series against New Zealand, Root scored two tons and a half-century.

India is an opposition against whom Root enjoys playing and has often dominated in Tests.

He also has a very healthy average against India of 60.33 from his 24 matches against India.

Other bowlers like Mohammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami are also a handful when they are given the new cherry to bowl with.

It will be a do-or-die match for India and England as they will look to gain some valuable points in the World Test Championship.
