Carrying on the best form of his life, England captain Joe Root scored his third century of the series against India to move his team into a prime position to win the third Test at Headingley on Thursday. Root struck 121 — adding to knocks of 109 and 180* earlier in the series and three other three-figure scores in 2021 — as England reached 423-8 at the end of Day 2, for a lead of 345 runs.
