Joe Root unbelievably greedy and selfish this morning in the Trumpesque style.

To be fair to him, with that many runs to spare and the game pretty much in the bag I'm ok with him giving himself a chance for his fifth, I think he earned that yesterday.

I could agree Paul e in my weakest sentimental moment but it was not professional. Canít see an Aussie skipper doing that specially as threat of rain was there.

It was brilliant entertainment though specially Joeís 28 runs over.

If there was no chance of him taking a wicket I'd agree but he'd bene very dangerous in the previous session so I can forgive him for giving it a go, especially when it happened during one of our most impressive away performances in years.
