Joe Root, Test captain of England wants to be in the squad for the forthcoming T20 World Cup.
Joe Root will appear in his 100th Test as he leads the England team in Friday's opening match against India in the series. For now, the focus is on the four-match Test series, but Joe Root did not give up on his ambitions for the T20, months after being overlooked for a series against Australia at home soil.
Joe Root told the media that the most important thing for him is for England to enter the World Cup with the strongest squad and give them the best opportunity to win there, and he hopes that can be a part of that squad.
He added that if not then, he is going to help his teammates because it will be a massive success on the back of what they've done in the 50-over World Cup.
The T20 World Cup is set to take place later this year in India.
The 30-year-old Joe Root, is one of the world's best Test cricket batsmen, has thus far scored 893 runs with 5 half-centuries in 32 T20I matches, at a strike rate of 126.3.
