Joe Root quotes

Aug 16 2017

I managed to chat with Faf after the game and he gave me a few views - not really much. He was saying he declared when he did trying to see if he could get early wickets, and it swung a little bit early on. But it's very different in terms of the humidity and the balls that they used, so whether's there a crossover I'm not sure. We have to see how things turn out and what the surfaces are.feedback

With Chris we feel he hasn't quite had the game-time under his belt and we don't want to rush him back after such a serious injury.feedback

Aug 16 2017

Obviously there are slightly different challenges and it might throw up a different rhythm to the game. But I think it's important not to have too many theories and we react to what's thrown up in front of us and make sure that if things do start to happen slightly differently to normal we respond to that very quickly, and make sure we win those sessions. It looks like there are going to be some fantastic crowds. I think it's been sold out for the first three days, so hopefully it's a huge success and it can widen the audience for Test cricket.feedback

Aug 16 2017

The Ashes is important, but every Test match we play is important and no one is treating this differently. No one is seeing the series as an experimental thing. We need to get off to a strong start and will do everything on and off the field to make sure of that.feedback

Yes, we're going to bat first.feedback

Aug 03 2017

It's tough, and that's why it's called Test cricket, it can be a very hard thing to break into. You come from county cricket where there's not a huge amount of exposure to the media and external scrutiny - and you have to get your head around it pretty quickly. It is a test of character, it's a test of skill.feedback

Aug 03 2017

He's a very level-headed guy, he's got a very strong character and throughout he's been very much the same in the way he's approached his training and in each game as well. It's great to see someone so light of experience be very mature and go about it in the right way. The way he played in that second innings was extremely great to see, I'm pleased that he's been able to get a score and hopefully that'll lead into some more runs this week.feedback

Aug 03 2017

One thing we can take from last week moving forward – even though we did bat first – was that batting approach, playing in that manner. If we try and harness that and repeat that over and over we will give ourselves the best chance. There were very few dismissals in that first innings where we gave our wickets away on a very bowler-friendly surface. If we can try and capture that and take that forward we will be a difficult side to beat.feedback

Aug 03 2017

There's been a lot of chat about the outfield and the surface and the weather around, but most importantly all we need to focus on is making sure we look to win this game. It [the wicket] was under-prepared and a lot can change in the next 24 hours, so we'll make a judgement on the side tomorrow.feedback

You'll only find that out when he's exposed to different conditions and different surfaces. He's a very level-headed guy and seems pretty calm out there, which should stand him in really good stead.feedback

Jul 31 2017

It'd be hard for him to top that. The most important thing for him is to approach the next game in a similar manner, and that he doesn't expect a performance like this.feedback

Jul 31 2017

He's one Test into his career and it's wrong to make assumptions now as to how he will fare in the future. He goes about his business in a very mature manner - he's a very level-headed guy, he seems pretty calm out there in the field and it should stand him in good stead - you'll only find out when he's exposed to different conditions and situations.feedback

Jul 31 2017

He's always been a great player but over the last year he's really matured – he's found ways to be more consistent and affect the game. Stokes is a person you know you can turn to under pressure. He works extremely hard so hopefully he is still on upward curve and there is more he can achieve in the game.feedback

Jul 27 2017

I'm really excited for him and I'm sure he's desperate to show everyone what he can do with the red ball for England.feedback

Jul 26 2017

It felt a bit personal at the time but on reflection you have to understand people have an obligation to do their job and say how they feel they see it. We weren't at our best and there's no point hiding behind any excuses – we know we're better than that and this week is an opportunity to put that right.feedback

Jul 26 2017

Toby has been banging on the door for a while now and performed very well for Middlesex in red-ball cricket. He is very skilful so it will be great to see him in action. In terms of Tom, he has a very solid all-round game, is strong on the leg side and looks like he is very calm from the way he has gone about these last two days. He is very focused and calm. I am very excited to see them get their go.feedback

Jul 26 2017

Yes we have to stay true to ourselves but it doesn't mean that we aren't able to bat long periods of time. Last week was not good enough and not a fair reflection on us as a team.feedback

Jul 17 2017

We will sit down over the next couple of days. The top six are talented players and they will be desperate to make their chances count when they come along.feedback

Jul 09 2017

I didn't know what to expect but what was pleasing was everything I asked of the lads they were very open to do and responded to it - that can't be a bad thing moving forward.feedback

Jul 09 2017

He'll always tell you he feels he's a batter who bowls. He is at his best when he's aggressive and attacking in his style - he gets great shape on the ball and puts a lot of revs on it.feedback

Jul 09 2017

I think everyone has played their part this week, and it's important that was the case. It might not have been taking a six fer or scoring a 50 but there were crucial periods where the guys showed character, were very proactive and effected the way in a positive manner. I wanted us to be proactive, to stay ahead of the game and, when there was an opportunity, take responsibility. Everyone at certain points did that and it's important we continue to do that if we are to take this side forward.feedback

When Moeen is at his best is when he's aggressive – he gets great shape on the ball, puts a lot of revs on it and makes it difficult to line him up. The lines he bowled this week in the foot holes were outstanding. He'll always tell you he feels he's a batter who bowls but that's the great thing about our top seven – we have two really good bowling options with him and Ben Stokes and that's a real luxury. It was great to see him be so positive and it gives us great depth in our side.feedback

Jul 06 2017

You go from a terrible feeling of disgust to feeling like you have been blessed. I rode my luck today and sometimes you have to take it with a pinch of salt. I enjoyed every minute from start to finish. It was really pleasing to come off at the end with the side in a position to kick on in the morning and get a really good first innings score.feedback

Jul 03 2017

Forget that. Just whack it. That's what you do.feedback

Jun 01 2017

It was very satisfying. That is one of the things you strive for as a batter is to make a big contribution and be not out at the end. It is a great statement from us but it also fills us with confidence going into the next game. It's a really good start and something to build on and hopefully now we can do that. The calf is all right. It looks like it is just a bit of cramp. I don't see it as a big issue. The medical team are pretty happy with it, I am happy with it and it seemed to ease off at the back end of the innings.feedback

It looks like it is just a bit of cramp. I don't see it as too big an issue. I have seen the medical team. They are pretty happy with it. It seemed to ease off at the back end of the innings.feedback

Jun 01 2017

It is a great statement of intent and it fills us with confidence going into the next game. It is a really good start and something to build on.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - World Cup

It was very satisfying to get the hundred and the team over the line. It is what you strive for as a batter to make a big contribution and be not out at the end. The most pleasing thing is that it came in a major tournament. You want to make sure you contribute to England wins but when it is in a Champions Trophy or a World Cup they mean a lot more.feedback

One thing Stokesy can do for us is make sure he finds a little weakness in Smith's armoury for when we go down to Australia.feedback

Mar 29 2017

The small things are going to make such a big difference for this team. The most important thing is recognising when you do have to get a bit more serious, a bit tougher, find ways of playing for a draw or find ways of wresting the game back into your hands so you can go on and win. Be a little bit harder to beat on occasions.feedback

Mar 29 2017

You want to entertain as a side, but people also tune in to see your side win. And it's important, first and foremost, that we look after that. Sky have done a great job. BT have been very good at doing things slightly differently. But you can't beat the fact that it is going to be available to everyone. Making sure people have access to cricket on a broad spectrum is important.feedback

Mar 29 2017

That might come across as quite selfish. But it's going to be very important for me to set the right example when the opportunities arise. Over the last couple of years, my consistency has been fantastic. But, between 50 and 100, there have been far too many occasions when I have got out. The majority of the time, it has been a lapse of concentration or a loose shot, and that's not good enough.feedback
