Joe Root record at Lords London: Joe Root, who has played 26 international matches, will be playing at the Lord’s Cricket Ground tomorrow.
In the first ODI against India yesterday at The Oval, England batsman Joe Root could only hold out for a few deliveries despite playing an ODI for the first time in more than a year.

Root struggled to react to the additional bounce and edged the ball to Rishabh Pant behind the wickets as part of a batting collapse in front of India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah.

Root will be eager to translate his outstanding Test form to this format in the second ODI at Lord’s tomorrow. Since the beginning of 2021, Root has only batted three times in white-ball cricket.
The host team would be looking for one of its star batters to step up with England down the series 0-1 with a game on Sunday, in order to prevent a series loss. There is no better place for Root, who averages over 50 in both Tests and ODIs at this location, to get into a white-ball groove.
Root scored 1,975 runs at an average of 54.86 in 40 international innings across all forms at Lord’s, including six half-centuries and seven half-centuries. Root has scored 365 runs in his eight ODIs, with an average and strike rate of 52.14 and 81.29, respectively.
The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 final was Root’s final ODI at Lord’s, although in that encounter against India, he scored a match-winning 113* (116) with the aid of eight fours and a six.
