There was no looking back as Root's meteoric rise continued unabated. A thoroughly emphatic Man of the Series performance for England Under-19 against Bangladesh Under-19 in 2010 witnessed the 'boy wonder' land a three-year professional contract with Yorkshire.

Alastair Cook and his merry men surmounted tremendous odds to taste victory in the Test series. In the subsequent ODI series, Root compiled four successive scores of 30 plus, including his maiden half-century in the fourth ODI.

He has also been the standout in the 50-over format as well.

Root an exception in a team that is flooded with aggressive-and-powerful batsmen. This is despite him scoring 3498 runs from 74 innings at a strike-rate of 91 - England’s highest run-getter - since the 2015 World Cup. He batted at No. 3 at the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup and was the main reason why England enjoyed success at the 2019 Cricket World Cup.
