If 40 overs of play was possible, we could have created chances: Joe Root
England skipper Joe Root on Sunday said that his bowlers could have created opportunities in case they had a shot for at least 40 overs at the Indian batters on the washed out final day of the first Test. The match ended in a draw after India were 52 for 1, chasing 209 in the fourth innings.
“I think from our perspective, at one stage, we could have potentially 40 overs, in that period, (I) felt like we would have been able to create many chances on surface like that,” Root said at the post-match press conference. “So in many ways actually, the weather has robbed us all, of a fantastic final day’s test cricket, which is shame,” Root said.
