Whatever it takes!!!
He seems to play far more aggressive than he needs to.. more often than not (it's happened pretty much all series), and thus there's always an element of risk in his approach and so it's bound to affect his conversion. On the flip side he always has a quick 50 60 70 next to his name.
Has to learn a bit from Kohli - how he has cut-out a lot of the unnecessary or risky play from his batting, which has helped him convert the small 110s 120s into big hundreds & 200s!
I hardly ever see Root playing out a maiden, always wanting to score, at the expense of giving his wicket away and also not focusing as much on his defensive or technical side of things. Perhaps his attack is his defense.
Sign of a shrewd cricket mind, tbh. For all the talking up he gets about his technique, he is honestly no KW. What he does well, esp. away from home, seems to be in somehow working out the best way to survive without having to block all the time as he really does not have the defense to do it successfully. And with some of the numbers he has achieved already, he knows he will be looked at as a danger batsman and uses that to his advantage as well. Something Stokes is also trying to emulate and I think will crack it reasonably soon. Another reason why I think England should not give in to temptation and try and make Root,Stokes,Bairstow their #3,4,5 permanently. And use Stokes as a batsman who bowls and maybe use him in random 4 over bursts once a session but get him to continue his development as a batsman. Guy has a huge ceiling.
