Joe Root’s poor show against Scott Boland continued on the fifth day of the fourth Ashes Test, with the England captain being dismissed for the third time by an Australian fast bowler. Root made 24 off 85 balls before losing his wicket in the 59th over in Sydney on Sunday. After receiving a length delivery around the fifth stump channel, Root dismissed wicketkeeper Alex Carey for a catch. Despite his dismissal, England kept their nerves and managed to draw the match with James Anderson and Stuart Broad not losing wickets. After setting a target of 388 runs, England drew the game at 270 for nine.

Cricket.com.au shared the video of Root’s dismissal on social media and captioned it, “Scott Boland can’t do anything wrong! Just try and stop him! Now he’s got England captain Joe Root for three consecutive times.” Huh! “

Here is the video:

During England’s first innings, Root was dismissed for zero after facing only seven balls. Receiving a length delivery, he dismissed Steve Smith at second slip.
