“He reflected on the Lord’s Test and some of the decisions he made,” Silverwood said. He also lauded Root for making a difference in the Headingley game with his ton.
“Seeing him become England’s most successful captain was superb. It’s something I’ve been looking forward to for a while. He’s in a great place at the moment and I’m really enjoying watching him.”
“Joe and I reflected on the Lord’s Test and thought about what we could learn and how we could get better.

I think you can be aggressive in a very controlled way and I think they got that right,” he added.
