ENG vs WI: having the discipline and the approach is a real example for everyone else
Former England flyhalf and current batting coach Marcus Trescothick has praised skipper Joe Root after the latter smashed another century on the opening day of the second Test against the West Indies.
Root continued his second-inning century from the previous game and raised his 25th cent at the Kensington Oval in Barbados. He built a strong partnership with Dan Lawrence, who himself had 91 before crashing out in the day’s final.
“Great day, really positive day for us. To be in this position, we are very happy where we are. We had a great platform from which to start. To put pressure on the Caribbean bowlers was a great partnershipsaid Trescothick.
“To get a hundred last week and repeat it again is great to watch” – Marcus Trescothick
Root had the best year of his career in 2021, landing hundreds in Sri Lanka and India. He was the only England striker to be competitive and consistent throughout the game. As 2022 approached, England hoped their captain would carry on and he started on the right note.
“[On Joe Root] Having the discipline and the approach is a real example for everyone in the team. To get a hundred last week and repeat it again is great to watch. [Conditions] We expected it to be a little early, there was a spongy bounce throughout the dayadded Trescothick.
England were in trouble early on as they lost Zak Crawley to a duck when the score was 4. Root combined with Alex Lees to put 76 for the 2nd wicket before building a 164 run partnership with Lawrence. The latter fell at the end of the day because of a rush of adrenaline but will be happy with his contribution.
