Renowned Sky Sports commentator and analyst, Nasser Hussain, went on air to compare two-quartets of the modern Fab Four of cricket.

Hussain had a few words on Joe Root’s growing affinity of getting dismissed after scoring a fifty.

The incident took place during the second one-dayer between England and New Zealand at the Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui. Hussain mentioned Indian captain Virat Kohli is a game-changer when it comes to conversion of the fifties into hundreds.

Meanwhile, England Test captain Joe Root, during the Ashes, gave away his wicket after scoring above 50 five times. He continued his tendency even in the 1st ODI at Hamilton, having dismissed in the seventies.

The problem is there is one lad who’s just changed the game and that’s Kohli. Every time he gets in, he goes to get hundred and wins the game,” commented Nasser Hussain on the said topic.

As a matter of Root, himself admitted off-late being guilty of not delivering with the bat during the humiliating Ashes loss.

“As a captain and senior player you have to stand up and deliver and I wasn’t able to do that. That’s not sitting well with me right now and coming into a new series in New Zealand, you want to make sure you bounce back from that and set the example for the rest of the guys,” claimed Joe Root according to Sky Sports.

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli is on a record-breaking spree at the moment. Kohli amassed a whopping 871 runs on the South African tour, which consisted of four tons.

When it comes to ODI and Test cricket, Kohli has as many as 62 half-centuries to his name. The ton machine has reached the three-figure mark on 56 occasions with an unbelievable conversion rate of 47.25.
