Former England player Nick Compton believes that Joe Root has the opportunity to surpass the tally of runs scored by former Indian batter, Sachin Tendulkar, in the longest format of the game.

Root is continuing where he left off in 2021, racking up runs everywhere he goes. He recently went past the 10,000-run mark, becoming only the second English player to achieve the feat after Sir Alastair Cook.

I think he can. He’s young and is right up there with Tendulkar in terms of runs scored at 31 [years of age]. Barring a loss of fitness or a major injury, it’s hard not to see someone playing like him scoring runs.”

Joe is an incredible player. When you think of his consistency, he scores runs every time he bats. I think there will come a point when the runs dry up or he has a tough series,” Compton said in a chat with Sportskeeda.

“At the moment, there’s nothing stopping him” – Nick Compton

Tendulkar scored 15,921 runs in 200 Tests, averaging 53.78 in the process. Root, who is currently 31 years of age, has entered the top 15 with 10,285 runs to his name in 120 Tests.

Between now and Tendulkar’s record, if he can keep going like this, he’ll get there. If there’s a big slump in his form, how will he respond and get through that?

That will be the next big challenge for him. At the moment, there’s nothing stopping him. It would be an amazing achievement if he breaks Tendulkar’s record,” he concluded.
