Watch Video: Joe Root Uses Jack Leech’s Head to Shine Ball During Pakistan vs England Test

The Rawalpindi Test between Pakistan and England has so far been run fest for both sides. Batting first, the visitors piled up a mammoth 657/10 at a rapid pace of 6.5 an over with their four batters – Harry Brook (153), Zak Crawley (122), Ben Duckett (107) and Ollie Pope (108) – smashing centuries.

Watch Video: Joe Root Uses Jack Leech’s Head To Shine Ball During Pakistan Vs England Test

Former England captain Joe Root took an action on the field that garnered a lot of attention after realizing that wickets were not coming easily. The amusing thing was that the Englishman used Jack Leach’s bald head to wipe away all the sweat from there before the 73rd over when he went to shine the ball. Not to mention that saliva, which was the best method for sparkling the ball, is no longer allowed to be used by players.

The video was shared by popular England cricket suppourters group Barmy Army on their Twitter page.


The commentators were left in splits by Root’s ‘ingenious’ tactic; earlier this year, the International Cricket Council had announced a permanent ban on the use of saliva over the ball and while use of sweat was still permitted, Root’s out-of-the-box approach went viral on social media.

Earlier, England had won the toss and opted to bat in the first Test at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium. The Rawalpindi pitch saw England racking up a world record 506 runs on the opening day of the Test. Ramiz slammed the surface as “embarrassing” and said that it would take another season for the quality of pitches to improve.

“It is embarrassing for us, especially when you have a cricketer as chairman,” Ramiz said as quoted by ESPNCricinfo during the lunch break on the second day of the Test.
