Joe Root is Top Run Getter:
Joe Root, the phenomenal England batter has ended as the top run-getter. He scored runs for England even when they were having a dreadful Ashes series. He was their main man in the India tour of England as well. Root did most of the scoring for the English team in the initial stage of the tournament before he was removed from the leadership role. In the Bazzball-era too, he has been a consistent performer. He has relied on his technical skill to attack the opposition in the newfound approach in the World Test Championship.
