Root's had his moments in T20s, but he plays far too many run-a-ball (or thereabouts) innings for my liking. Him and Denly in the same team is not a good idea at all imo, given the latter is sort of Root-lite in the format.

Root is perfect when they play the first team, with Bairstow, Buttler, ATVG Moeen Ali etc.

Can't recall the last time he did anything of note in the format.

Root did well in our recent match against WI (the one where they ended up being out for 45), but he'd pretty much just made low scores or slightly bigger but slow-ish innings since his (admittedly brilliant) 83 againt SA in the 2016 WC when we were chasing 230.

Woo! These guys have gone and benched ATVG Moeen Ali. and now Root is bowling. Take him to the cleaners, I say!
 

Borges

International Regular
Both teams are experimenting a bit with the line ups.
Last game, England benched ATVG Moeen Ali; this one, they have benched wunderkind Archer. And they still have got Plunkett Disaster in the eleven.
