Joe Root has been nominated for both the ICC’s international and Test player of the decade awards, and Yorkshire coach Andrew Gale is expecting plenty more accolades to come his way.

“If he still has the hunger for the game and the game doesn’t get on top of him and drain the enthusiasm he has, he could still be in this kind of discussion in 10 years’ time,” said Gale, one of the England Test captain’s biggest fans.

“He’s a fit lad who looks after himself and could play for as long as he wants.”
