Joe Root’s sublime form in 2021 can be summed up in one simple statistic: he has become only the third player in history to score over 1,700 runs in Test cricket in a calendar year. Only Mohammad Yousuf and Sir Vivian Richards stand between him and the throne.

Brilliantly supplanting and often surpassing the exploits of Tim Southee, Trent Boult, and Neil Wagner. He was the standout performer in Southampton, taking seven wickets and contributing 21 runs in the first innings, earning him the Player of the Match award.
