Joseph Edward Root's Profile

That Joe Root would one day captain England was taken as read when he hit the grand old age of 23. The accolade everybody anticipated became his three years later after Alastair Cook stood down after a heavy defeat in India with the familiar exhausted look of a Test captain who felt he could do no more. It was understandable that there were a few fears for Root's future workload. He was rare among England batsmen in achieving maturity so quickly, and had looked consumed by the delights of batting from the moment he first took guard. Now he had new responsibilities ahead.
