Joseph Edward Root is an English international cricket player who is the present captain of England in Test cricket. Joe Root also represents Yorkshire in domestic cricket. Root was part of the England squad that won the 2019 Cricket World Cup and was England’s leading run-scorer in the tournament. Joe Root was originally a right-handed opening batsman and occasional off-spinner. However, he has played the majority of his cricket for England in the middle order. 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. New Zealand batting great Martin Crowe described Root as one of the young “Fab Four” of Test cricket along with Steve Smith, Kane Williamson, and Virat Kohli.
