England might have had a very difficult time over the last few years

England might have had a very difficult time over the last few years, but, the selectors would be happy with the fact that during this period, they have found somebody who is going to be an absolute legend in a few years’ time.

Joe Root, the cheesy, little Yorkshire man, has been a great shining light for England recently.

After absolutely thumping the bowling attacks of India and Sri Lanka in the summer of 2014, Root carried on his form in limited-over Cricket too, doing fairly well in Sri Lanka and then, in Australia, both in the triangular and the World Cup.

And, now, he has had a similar start to the ongoing season as he scored a hundred on the first day of the first match of 3-test match series between England and West Indies.

He just does not get tired of scoring runs, Root and his temperament at this age is incredible.

In his short career so far, very rarely it has happened that he has tried to play an irresponsible shot at a crucial time and has got out.

He does not do that. He plays the situation every time and plays it very well.

In Antigua too, there was a bit happening on the pitch when he made his way to the centre to join Bell and not on one instance did he try to hit out. He weathered the attack and then, milked it later.

You don’t generally get to see this sort of quality in a player who is in early twenties.

And, because of him being so good temperament wise, some of the people already want him to be given the England captaincy in all formats.

Root has got 6 hundreds in test matches so far.
