New Zealand will need to find a way to tackle these players.

Root will look to build on what is an already impressive test record. After 65 tests, he averages slightly over 53, with 37 half and 13 centuries to match. He’s not short of runs in the longer form of the game either. Finishing England’s second highest run scorer in the Ashes series with 378 in five test matches, finishing only five runs behind top run scorer Dawid Malan.
