ASHES 2017-18 : Root said he was disappointed with the misconduct of his players

oot said he was disappointed with the misconduct of his players

In his first Ashes series in charge, Root said he was disappointed with the misconduct of his players. “I’m fed up of talking about stuff that’s not cricket,” he told reporters in Perth. “The lads have to wake up and smarten up. Guys have made silly mistakes that of course are going to get blown out of proportion. It’s been frustrating…very frustrating.”

Still in his infancy as captain, Root believed he could learn from the troublesome campaign. “I feel like I’ve learned a large amount,” he said. “I knew it would be challenging, and I knew there would be stuff around the cricket — but not to this extent.”

Root believed Anderson was also perhaps culpable during the Dunkett incident. “Yes, maybe a little bit,” he said. “His focus now has to be about leading that bowling attack and doing the right things on the field.”
