Old conversation between Amitabh and Flintoff viral after Joe Root's century
England captain Joe Root has dominated the Indian bowlers in the ongoing ICC World Test Championship series between the England cricket team and the Indian cricket team.
In the third Test of the series underway at Headingley currently, Root smashed his third century of the series. Before this Test, he had scored a hundred at Lord’s and Trent Bridge as well. The Indian bowlers have been unable to stop Root, especially in the first innings of the match.
Back in 2016, when England toured India, the home side crushed the visitors by a margin of 4-0 in a 5-Test match series. Before the series, many English fans hoped that Joe Root would help the England cricket team register a Test series win in India.
At that time, a tweet made by Amitabh Bachchan in 2016 had gone viral. It was a reply to Andrew Flintoff, who claimed that if Virat Kohli continues to play well, he will become as good as Joe Root.
Flintoff soon received a reply from Bachchan, who wrote:
“Root who ? जड़ से उखाड़ देंगे Root ko ..!!!”
Andrew Flintoff waited for 5 years to reply to Amitabh Bachchan
When England toured India earlier this year, Joe Root’s superb batting performance helped the English team defeat India by a big margin in the first Test at Chepauk. After that game, Flintoff replied to Amitabh:
“With the greatest respect , this aged well.”

Now that Joe Root is performing well against the Indian cricket team, this conversation between Amitabh Bachchan and Andrew Flintoff has been going viral on the internet. The India vs England 3rd Test’s third day will begin today at 3:30 PM IST.
