Why You Should Claim This 7/1 South Africa v England Price Boost
Joe Root is a proud Yorkshireman – which means he loves to prove people wrong. Root was recently left out of the T20 squad, with many people believing he doesn’t have a future in that format.
Root will take that as a personal insult, he will be determined to prove everyone wrong and show his critics that he is still capable of playing all three formats of the game at the highest level.
The England Test captain scores runs, it is simple as that. During his career he has scored 5962 One Day International runs from 140 innings. He has scored 33 half centuries, 16 centuries and has been not out 21 times. This is his stage and he will once again own in against South Africa on Friday.
