About Joe Root

After Joe Root made his first-class debut for Yorkshire in 2011 and firmly established his place in the side, cricket pundits and commentators were swift to identify him as a rising talent. His impressive performances earned him a spot in the England Lions squad, followed by inclusion in the England Performance Programme. In late 2012, Root received the call to join the England Test squad for their tour of India. Root’s Test debut came in the final Test of that series, and he made an immediate impact by contributing a crucial 79 runs, aiding England in securing a draw and clinching their first series victory in India in 28 years. His entry into the one-day international squad followed just a month later, and he has since consistently delivered commendable performances for England. Notably, he achieved an unbeaten double century against Sri Lanka in June 2014, along with two one-day international centuries. Root’s strong form persisted into early 2015, as he recorded an unbeaten 182 in a Test match against the West Indies. In 2017, he assumed the role of captain for the England Test team, succeeding Alastair Cook, who had captained the side for four years. Root led the team until he stepped down from the captaincy following the 2021-22 Ashes tour to Australia. Despite this change in responsibilities, Root has continued to exhibit exceptional form, solidifying his reputation as a premier batsman in international cricket.
