Galle, Sri Lanka, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 24th Jan, 2021 ) :Skipper Joe Root hit his second successive Test century to help England stay in the hunt on day three of the second match against Sri Lanka on Sunday.
Root, who scored 228 in England's opening win of the two-Test series, reached his 19th Test century and his eighth as captain.
The star batsman, who went past England great Geoff Boycott's Test runs of 8,114 on Saturday, has an average of close to 49 in 99 Tests.
He raised his bat to the applauding dressing room and a lone England fan standing at the ramparts of an old fort overlooking the picturesque ground.
