Joe Root stars by posting top score of 62 to hold England's faltering innings together as Australia chase 260 runs
Joe Root showed his value as a white-ball batsman to hold England’s faltering innings together in Perth.
Twenty four hours after going unsold on the opening day of the Indian Premier League auction, Test captain Root top scored with 62 as Australia were set 260 to reduce their Gillette Series defeat to 3-2.
The 27-year-old was the glue as the rest of the middle order splintered, becoming the penultimate victim of Andrew Tye’s maiden international five-wicket haul.
