Joe Root opted to shine the ball on Jack Leach’s head during England’s first Test against Pakistan in Rawalpindi! The viral video of Root shining the ball on Leach’s bald head is all the rage on social media.
The instance caught everyone’s eye as the incident happened during the 72nd over of Pakistan’s innings when the cameras panned on Root, the former England captain, taking the ball and rubbing it on Leach’s bald head. This triggered hoars of laughter from the commentators.
Meanwhile, one of them mentioned how Root can’t use saliva on the ball due to Covid-era rules and therefore had to use the sweat on Leach’s bald head just to shine the ball.
