Reverse-Scoop of Joe Root’s “Ridiculous”

Watch: Twitter erupts after Joe Root’s “Ridiculous” Reverse-Scoop Off Neil Wagner

As England raced 296 to finish a series sweep, Joe Root astonished Twitter with a sensational reverse-scoop off bowler Neil Wagner.

With each passing day, Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum’s renewed approach to Test cricket is increasing the admiration of viewers with their entertaining brand of game. While players like Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes have won fans over with their aggressive batting, even Joe Root, who is seen as a more traditional Test batsman, is joining in on the fun. On Day 4 at Headingley in Leeds, England needed to score 296 points to defeat New Zealand in the third Test, and Root surprised Twitter with a spectacular reverse-scoop off bowler Neil Wagner.

Left-handed Wagner bowled one full and across him while running in from over the wicket, but English ace hitter Root quickly altered positions and scooped the ball over the third man boundary.

The video was posted to Twitter by the England Cricket Board with the simple caption: “Joseph Root.” You are really bonkers.
