Description
Available in:

Joseph Edward Root (born 30 December 1990) is an English international cricketer who is the current captain of the England Test team. He also represents Yorkshire domestically. He was originally a right-handed opening batsman and occasional off-spinner, with a similar playing style to former England captain Michael Vaughan. However, he has played the majority of his cricket for England in the middle order. He is often regarded as one of the best batsmen in the world. He now predominantly fields at first slip. He made his debut for England in the 2012 Test series in India and made his ODI and Twenty20 International debuts on the same tour, before scoring his maiden Test century at his home ground of Headingley the following spring against New Zealand. He is currently ranked fourth in Test batting and fourth in ODI batting rankings according to the ICC Player Rankings, having previously been ranked the best Test batsman.
