On Saturday, Australia won the first 2021 Ashes Test with 9 wickets and won the victory after only 20 runs. After the results of the first Ashes Test, many former players expressed doubts about the leadership of England captain Joe Root. Former Pakistani opening batsman Salman Butt was one of those who talked about Joe Root's approach against Australia in the first test. Bart compared Joe Root to Verat Kohli and said the Indian captain was “a lot ahead of Root” in terms of “aggression, attitude and attitude towards opponents.”
“Villat has an attitude of challenging opponents. His aggressive intentions when hitting the ball are very important for a player to perform in Australian conditions. Corley leads Joe Root in terms of aggressiveness, attitude and methods against opponents. A few miles,” Bart said on his YouTube channel.
“Root looks nervous when struggling, and we can't see this on Virat's face. Virat's body language and intensity level are much better than Root, especially in the game against Australia,” he added.
The England team, which was eliminated by 147 points in the first game of the Ashes Opener, made a strong counterattack in the second game, as captain Joe Root (89 points) and David Maran (82 points) were the third minor. The goal was increased by 142 points, but the tour team lost the next 8 wickets and only performed 74 runs, setting a meager goal of only 20 runs to the home team.
The Australian team chased the total points in the sixth game and only lost Alex Carey's wicket.
The second Ashes test will be a day and night test and will begin at the Adelaide Oval Stadium on December 16.
