England and India would lock horns in
the rescheduled fifth Test from the 2021 series in July. Their pace attack will be led by Jasprit Bumrah.
Joe Root recently became the 14th
cricketer to complete 10,000 Test runs.
In a career spanning nearly a decade,
Root has racked up 10,194 runs at 49.97.
Bumrah has been India's premier pacer across formats. He has scalped 123 wickets from 27 Tests at an incredible average of 21.73 so far.
As of now, Bumrah has dismissed Root a total of six times in Test cricket. Meanwhile, Root has scored 194 runs off 418 balls against Bumrah.
Root and Bumrah clashed for the first time in the 2018 series in England. The latter removed Root twice in that series, having conceded 44 runs off 127 balls.
Bumrah made Root his bunny in the
unfinished 2021 series (England). He has
already dismissed the England batter thrice
in as many Tests (106 off 195 balls).
