Root elated to claim victory in England’s 500th away Test

England has recorded a sensational comeback in the ongoing Test series against South Africa after being knocked down in Centurion Test. In the red-ball game played at Port Elizabeth, England defeated the hosts by an innings and 53-runs to take an unassailable 2-1 lead in the four-match series.

While the last wicket partnership of 99 runs injected some life in South Africa, but that wasn’t enough to save the rainbow nation from an embarrassing defeat. On the other hand, England’s skipper Joe Root was found in a jubilant manner to see his team rising up from a precarious position to boss the series.

Sharing his views on grabbing a stunning victory, the impactful English batter said that this is a template England sets for themselves. Admiring the adaptability of his team, Root added that his squad contains strength among its ranks and sits confident to do well in the last match to win the series. It is important to note that this was England’s 500th away Test and 150th victory in such Tests.
