England captain, Joe Root became the first player in history to score a double century in his 100th Test match.

Root, who was unbeaten on 128 overnight, batted on against India on Day 2 in Chennai and notched up the fifth double century of his career – second in three Tests.

In the process, Root also surpassed former Pakistan captain Inzamam-Ul-Haq as the player with the highest individual score playing the 100th Test match of his career.

Prior to the start of the series against Sri Lanka, where Root hit a double ton and a century, the England skipper had gone without a century in nine Tests, and while he wasn’t short of runs.

As Root remained unbeaten who fell after scoring 218 runs also became only the second captain – first since the legendary Don Bradman – to hit 150-plus scores in three straight Test matches.
