Joe Root

The right-handed batsman, who made his T20I debut in September 2016 is currently the number one ranked cricketer in the shortest format of the game. In ODIs, Azam is at the third spot only after Indian skipper Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.

The left-handed Stokes had played a knock of 84 runs in the final to tie the game. He again batted in the Super Over to help England to achieve victory.

"And it's not happened by accident, he works bloody hard and sets a great example to the young guys around in our team as they come into this side, seeing what Test cricket is like and how different it is to county cricket," he said.

Kohli now has an eight-point lead over Smith, but India skipper would not be able to improve his points as the side is not scheduled to play a Test match this year.

Root got out after smashing 226 runs on day four of the second Test at Seddon Park. This was also his first double hundred on foreign soil and overall his third.

The team from Down Under will next face Sri Lanka in a three-match T20I series whereas England will take on New Zealand in a five-match T20I series and two-match Test series.

Nathan Lyon and Peter Siddle added some runs late in the day, ensuring the team from Down Under goes past the 220-run mark. Both Lyon (25) and Siddle (18) were sent back to the pavilion by Archer. This enabled the pacer to take his wicket tally to six and bundle Australia out for 225.

Australia declared their innings at 494/8 and they were able to scalp one wicket of England before the close of play on day two.Joe Denly was sent back to the pavilion by Pat Cummins restricting England to 23/1 at stumps on day two.

England and Australia have played 346 Tests against each other in which England has managed to win 108 matches whereas Australia has won 144 matches. 94 matches between these two sides have ended in a draw.

He's a proven world-class performer, a fantastic player. It will be interesting to see how it unfolds throughout the series. Last time they came (to the UK in 2015), when the wickets were very good and flat he made it really count and made two very big hundreds (at Lord's and The Oval)
