IND vs ENG, He Makes Us Feel Pretty Rubbish: Ben Stokes Leads Praise Of Joe Root
England all-rounder Ben Stokes heaped praise on his captain Joe Root after he scored his second double century in three matches on the second day of the first Test against India here on Saturday.
"He makes us all feel pretty rubbish, how he makes batting look. I was quite surprised when he ran down the wicket and smashed a six for the double," said Stokes after play.
"He is in phenomenal form. Makes it look very, very easy, the way he plays spin and dominates spin. It incredible to watch. I don't think we have had an England batsman ever play spin the way he does. He's got an answer and option for everything thrown at him. He is such a delight to watch," he said.
Root batted for nearly six full sessions for his 218, scored off 377 balls, before falling to left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem.
