With the Vardah storm petrifying the city of Chennai, life has been incredibly difficult in the last few days for its residents. Unfortunately, it has also had an impact on the 5th Test, that will commence from tomorrow.
Both India and England’s practice sessions have been denied due to these rains and these teams might enter the field(if rain god permits) on Friday with the least of match practice.
Yet, English batsman Joe Root is not willing to compromise as far as his practice sessions are concerned. Hence, he took to the streets of Chennai and with the help of his coaching staff, he batted for sometime on the road.
Here is the video of his practice session on the road, posted by England Cricket Board’s official Twitter handler.
