England veteran fast bowler Stuart Broad has a far different idea of Joe Root celebrating his hundred at Headingley in Leeds. In fact, Broad asked fans if they would have liked to see Root celebrating his century by taking off his jersey.

The right-arm fast bowler Broad shared his post with the image of Andrew Flintoff, who celebrated the England win against India by taking his shirt off in Mumbai.

Test leader Root had celebrated his hundred in the decider against India by just dropping his bat. Thus, he gave it back to his critics who had blamed him for his wretched form.

In fact, Root was dropped from the Twenty20 International final match due to his poor run of form. However, England’s prominent batsman was able to show that why the ‘form is temporary and class is permanent’.

Root scored back-to-back centuries in the ODI series – to prove his mettle. Therefore, the right-hander was also adjudged as the Man of the Match for scoring 216 runs in the three One-Dayers of the series.

Consequently, Root was able to hit back strongly at his critics in a grand style. There were doubts over his white-ball place in the England team. Thus, he was able to show that why he is the ROOT of England’s middle order.

In fact, Root was brilliant against the Indian wrist spinners especially against chinaman Kuldeep Yadav, who was the Albatross around England’s neck.

Root played most of the spinner’s deliveries right on the backfoot. More importantly, he knew for which balls he should be coming forward and going back right into the crease.

Stuart Broad took to Twitter – to share his thoughts on Root’s celebration.

Broad’s post read as, RT if you’d have preferred @root66 to whip his shirt off & run round Headingley rather than that ‘bat drop.’ ??
