Test Player of the Summer

Earlier today, the PCA named Joe Root the LV= Insurance Test Player of the Summer.

Joe topped the PCA’s Test MVP rankings after a series of standout batting performances over the six home matches of 2021.

The summer started with Joe scoring 97 runs over the two Tests against New Zealand.

Following New Zealand, England entertained India.

In the four Tests played, Joe amassed 564 runs off the Indian bowlers. This total included successive centuries in the first three matches.

A magnificent 180no scored in the second Test at Lord’s was Joe’s batting highlight of the summer – although, England fell to a 151 run defeat.

Earlier this month, Joe returned to the top of the ICC’s Test batting standings after some outstanding performances over 2021.
