Even Joe Root, known for his more traditional Test batting, is getting in on the action. On Day 4 of the ongoing third Test against New Zealand at Headingley in Leeds, Root wowed Twitter with an outrageous reverse-scoop off pacer Neil Wagner as England chased 296 to complete a series sweep.

Coming in from over the wicket, the left-handed Wagner delivered a full ball outside off to Root. The star batter from England swiftly switched his stance and executed a well-timed scoop shot, sending the ball sailing over the third man boundary.

With Brendon McCullum as their coach, the English team has adopted an aggressive approach to their cricket, and they’re set on maintaining that style in this match. After a solid partnership for the second wicket, England’s innings got off to a shaky start, culminating in the loss of their fourth wicket at the score of 154.

Joe Root played a well-angled shot, perfectly executing a scoop over the slips to score a boundary. Although he has been an aggressive player in Test cricket, he has also fallen victim to the same shot before. In the 28th over, Neil Wagner came in to bowl and was successful in dismissing Root.
