In England, the day of Sunday 5 June was named after the legendary batsman Joe Root.  The former Test captain of England scored a brilliant century at the historic ground of Lord's, completed his 10,000 runs in Test cricket and led the team to victory over New Zealand.  But not only Root but another England batsman caught everyone's attention by scoring a century.  However, he did not get much discussion.  This batsman is Joe Denly.  (Photo: AFP/T20 Blast)

The most special thing about this innings of Denly was that the team had already lost a wicket in the first over.  Denly then put up a brilliant partnership of 157 runs with Jordan Cox.  With the help of this, Kent scored 192 runs and then defeated Middlesex for just 137 runs and won the match.  (Photo: Kent/T20 Blast)

Joe Denly has been a part of the England cricket team, but his number has not come for the last two years.  He has scored 827 runs in 15 Tests, 446 in 16 ODIs and 125 runs in 13 T20Is.  This is the reason why he has not got a chance in any format after 2020.  (Photo: AFP)
