I know my views on this are generally disagreed with, but still would have Joe Root in all teams, not even like he hasn't got a signature one-day shot that puts pressure on any bowler.
Freed of the captaincy, why not? Unless he doesn't want too,
It's like Oz leaving out Smith or Kiwis leaving out KW. Yet he's got a much better T20 International record than both, oh and he can bowl a bit.
In the end people need to not look at strike-rates for Englands improvement over a decade in this form, it's more to do with we had/have players that go on to biggish scores that's what get's the huge totals, of 200plus in t20, and 350plus in 50 over, not quick 20 or 30s and out, that's what we used to do.
Mind you at our nadir it was slow 20 or 30s and out, the golden days of Prior, Bell and Bopara...
