"Cherubic on the outside, cheeky on the inside"
The last time a right handed opener from Sheffield arrived on Australian shores he cracked three of the most scintillating hundreds Ashes cricket has ever seen. This time around Michael Vaughan is in the commentary box, but his protégé from the same Sheffield Collegiate club will hoping for something similar. Joe Root has enjoyed a stellar start to his international career over the past 12 months and by scoring a match-winning 180 at Lord's showed he is more than just the baby-faced Pom punched by David Warner. Cricket runs in the family with his brother Billy on the Lord's groundstaff and an England 12th man, while dad Matt led the MCC on a four-match tour to Cyprus in September.
