“The way we played through­out the four days, with ev­ery­one con­tribut­ing and play­ing a part, is re­ally pleas­ing.

“It’s great to see the strength in depth in this squad of play­ers. We’ve some dif­fi­cult se­lec­tions ahead, which I’m not com­plain­ing about. I’m go­ing to en­joy that meet­ing.

“It is go­ing to be tough, but that’s what you want. You want guys per­form­ing and to make those tough calls. Whether that’s leav­ing peo­ple out, keep­ing the same team, shuf­fling the pack slightly, we’ll have to wait and see.”

There was a gen­tle re­minder too, that egos will not be mas­saged.

“It’s about per­form­ing as a group, not mak­ing it about your­self, be­ing in­volved in the XI,” he said.

“The real achieve­ment is to be part of this squad and to hope­fully go on to win this tour.”

What­ever so­lu­tions Root and head coach Trevor Bayliss come up with in the com­ing days they will be hop­ing they lead to a rare se­ries vic­tory on the road.

Since beat­ing South Africa on the road in 2015/16 there have been failed at­tempts in Bangladesh, In­dia, Aus­tralia and New Zea­land.
