    Joe Root currently has 4,284 runs after the 1st innings of the 2nd test in India - therefore he needs 716 more runs to get on to the magic 5,000 runs leader board.

    87 players in the history of the game have got to this mark, of whom 21 are English.

    There are 3 more tests in this series and 7 home tests in the Summer - will he do it before then?
