England batter Joe Root has not been able to carry his form from the Test series into the ODIs against India. He bagged a duck in the third ODI on Sunday, July 17 at the Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester. Joe Root slammed a magnificent century in the fifth rescheduled Test to power England to victory. However, he has failed to replicate his performances in the three-match ODI series.

In the third ODI, England was asked to bat first by Indian skipper Rohit Sharma. Root came out to bat early in the innings, as England lost the opener, Jonny Bairstow, in the second over. Joe Root also followed Bairstow back in the hut in the same over. Mohammed Siraj bowled a superb angled delivery around off-stump.

The ball swung away late from Root and took the outside edge. It flew to Rohit Sharma at the second slip, who made no mistake in completing the catch. Root had to walk back to the pavilion for a three-ball duck. Siraj finished the over as a double-wicket maiden to push England on the back-foot early in the innings.

This was Joe Root’s second duck in the ongoing ODI series against England. He was dismissed for a two-ball duck by Jasprit Bumrah in the first ODI match at the Kennington Oval in London. Bumrah bowled a short and quick delivery outside off stump, which Root edged to the wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant. Joe Root finished the ODI series with eleven runs in three innings.

Let’s take a look at how fans reacted to Joe Root’s dismissal in the third ODI:

India lose both the openers early, chasing 260 in the third ODI

Indian openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan are already back in the pavilion with tweny-one runs on the board in the second innings against England in the third ODI chasing 260 runs. Both the wickets have been taken by pacer Reece Topley, who has troubled the Indian batters throughout the series.

Earlier in the match, England put on 259 runs on the board on the back of skipper Jos Buttler’s 60-runs knock. Moeen Ali and Jason Roy also contributed valuable runs to the total. Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya took four wickets, while Yuzvendra Chahal picked three. India needs to chase down 260 to win the three-match ODI series 2-1.
