Joe Root’s first stint in a T20 tournament outside England failed miserably as Sydney Thunder crashed out in the group stages. It was a nightmare outing Down Under for the English captain in Tests, who didn’t register even a single fifty-plus score during his time.

The 28-year-old was well short of his best game. He played seven matches before leaving to England with Jos Buttler and scored just 93 runs with a top score of 26. An average of 15.51 is below par for a player of his standard and reputation.
