Joe Root justifies selection

Posted on July 21, 2013 by Selby There have been 0 comments


What an outstanding performance by Joe Root making his maiden Test century as an England opening bat, leaving the hosts to close day 3 at Lords with  an unreachable 566 run lead, it rather seems to have justified the Nick Compton decision

Things could have been so different if he had not survived the mix up between keeper Haddin and Michael Clarke on Friday.

Root and Bell seemed there forever until their 153 run stand ended when Bell misjudged a short ball and was caught by Steve Smith at mid wicket Signed cricket bats are availabe for the Lords Test and containing Roots autograph all the more popular

It seems today at Lords will just be a formality however Tiger Woods needs to make sure Westwood doesn't move any further ahead at Muirfield (not forgetting Hunter Mahon good odd!!!
