Joe Root was awarded the coveted John Arlott Cup as NatWest PCA Young Player of the Year last night at the NatWest PCA Awards at Battersea Evolution.
Yorkshire’s opening batsman Root continued the impressive start to his career by scoring more than 1,400 runs in all domestic cricket in only his second full season as a professional. A career-best 222 not out against Hampshire was the highlight of his summer as he helped the Tykes to promotion in the LV County Championship.
As a result of his successful season Joe has been selected for the England Test squad to tour India.
Everyone at Gunn & Moore sends congratulations to Joe and wishes him every success in India.
