The star batter is part of the Dubai Capitals in the inaugural edition of the International League Twenty20. Proving his critics wrong, Root has been in phenomenal touch with the bat. He has played five games so far and has already amassed 214 runs at an excellent average of 53.50. Speaking about his strike rate, the right-handed batter has strokes these runs at a good strike rate of almost 135.

Speaking about his changes in the batting, Root said that a batter needs to evolve with the game. Root also said that a player needs to be smart and keep learning. He also gave examples of Steve Smith and Kane Williamson who have made changes to their batting techniques in order to be successful at the shortest format of the game.


You look at how I used to bat at the start of my career and you look at how it is now. It’s changed quite drastically. You could probably say the same for a number of guys that have played for the last 10 years or so. If you watch the various techniques now from when I started, it would be different. It’s the same with Steve Smith, same with Kane Williamson. You’ve got to keep looking to evolve as a player,” Root said in an interview with TOI

You can’t stand still. The amount of technology and information that opposition teams have, individuals have and how you play if you stand still, they’ll find a way to walk you out. You’ve got to try to stay ahead of the curve, you’ve got to be smart and you’ve got to keep adding to what you’ve got in terms of skills. It’s just about trying to keep looking to get better, keep looking to evolve, and keep learning from leading players around the world. You should not have an ego. Just constantly look to get better. Trust me, it serves you well,” he added.
