England very lucky to have Joe Root: Batting consultant

England batting consultant Jonathan Trott isn't surprised to see skipper Joe Root on the verge of playing his 100th Test and he feels that England is very lucky to have a player like him.

"I would say I was surprised a bit.

I think in that tour he came in a warm-up game and impressed everybody not only by his skill but by the way he conducted himself.

For somebody who hasn't played international cricket and was new to the side it was a big thing," Trott said in a virtual press conference on Feb 03.

"He still has passion for the game and the desire to improve and England is very lucky to have a player like him.

Leading as captain and able to bat in the middle order," he added.

Root will play his 100th Test for England when the visitors lock horns with India in the first Test starting on Feb 05.

Root made his Test debut during England's tour of India in 2012 which also had Trott as one of the players.
