Joe Root, batting for England, had a fantastic performance in the first Ashes Test against Australia. In the first inning, he was not out and scored 118 runs. In the second inning, he hit 46 more.

Joe Root, the English batting sensation, remains on top of his game. At Edgbaston in Birmingham during the first Ashes Test, he dominated with the bat against Australia. The right-handed batting superstar scored a century for the 30th time in a Test match, propelling England to a massive score in the first innings, and then added 46 more runs to help his team achieve a decent total in the second. The root is so fine that even his dismissal on Monday resulted in a first in Test history. Along the way, he overtook legends like Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar.

Root danced down the track in an attempt to challenge Nathan Lyon. Ingenious batsman deception from Lyon placed Root in danger of losing his wicket. Alex Carey, the Australian wicketkeeper, easily picked up the ball and removed the bails.

Root had never been dismissed in a Test match before. After his ejection, he had the second-most runs in the format by a batter who was then stumped. After Root had scored his 11,168th run in Tests, Nyon caught him out of the game.

Shivnarine Chanderpaul, a former West Indies cricketer, holds the record for most runs scored before being dismissed, with 11,414 runs. After scoring 8,800 runs, Graeme Smith is in third place.

Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar, meanwhile, set new Test cricket records of 8,195 and 7,419 runs before being dismissed.
