I am a bit fearful about what will happen during the Ashes series but only time will tell I guess. We need a good summer with Root hitting the ground running as the new captain, I just hope they haven't put to much on his shoulders seeing as he plays in all three formats.

I really think he shouldn't play in T20 internationals.

I agree and I can't really see why currently he still does. When he was made captain it would have been an ideal time to say that he will only play test and ODI cricket, perhaps this will still happen one day.

His batting isn't suited for T20 and he hasn't bowled in them for a while. A couple of times recently even though he has scored runs he has got bogged down and ended up either getting out at a crucial time or his batting partner has when trying to push on. He has more time to build in 50 over cricket and obviously test cricket.
