Joe Root’s recent stats in Test cricket is exceptional as he has loads of runs in his account since the year 2021. Joe Root has left behind their competitors namely former Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli, Steven Smith, and New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson.
Virat and Smith are searching for their peak form and Root on the other side can’t stop scoring runs. However, Joe Root has one of the great stats but mostly while playing at the home (England) and since January 2021, most of the Test matches he played in England only. He (Joe Root) was the ‘lone warrior’ in the first Test match between England and New Zealand. Former skipper Joe Root scored an amazing century to make England lead the 3-Test match series by 1-0.

2192 runs, 9 centuries.
Virat Kohli, Steven Smith & Kane Williamson combined:

Virat Kohli, Steven Smith and Kane Williamson haven’t scored a single century since January 2021. Many ex-cricketers appreciated Joe Root for his exceptional innings. Some former cricketers also feel that he (Joe Root) can break Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar’s record if he continues this form.
