Joe Root signs long-term deal with Yorkshire

London, Dec 8 (IBNS): England Test captain Joe Root has signed a new three-year contract extension with Yorkshire, keeping him at Emerald Headingley until the end of 2022, the club said.

Root, widely regarded as English cricket’s most prized asset, was already contracted with the White Rose until the end of 2019, but both parties have sought to maintain their long-standing affiliation.

Speaking from his family home in Sheffield and, having married wife Carrie at the weekend, Root told yorkshireccc.com: “I love playing for Yorkshire. It’s my county. It’s where I’ve grown up and what I know. It’s the White Rose and what it’s about. For me, I don’t really see myself playing anywhere else. I’m passionate about us as a county being successful. If I’ve got any opportunity to try and add to that and be a part of something, that’s really exciting for me.

“I’m looking forward to this new adventure for the club – new ground, young side, it should be a really exciting time.”

The 27-year-old right-hander has consistently vied for the tag as the world’s best batsman and currently sits fourth in the ICC Test Batsman rankings, behind Kane Williamson, Steven Smith and Virat Kohli.

A product of the Sheffield Collegiate club, Root has scored 6508 Test runs at an average of 50.44 since making his England debut in 2012.

He scored his maiden Test century on his home ground at Emerald Headingley in the summer series against the New Zealand in 2013 and became the sixth Englishman to score a century on their captaincy debut, with his coming at Lord’s in July 2017.
