Ashes 2013 corner: Too little has been seen of the real Joe Root
Shot of the day
Too little has been seen of the real Joe Root in this series. The luxurious manner in which he leant into a cover drive in the fourth over of the day was a reminder of what he is made of.
Ball of the day
Nathan Lyon, unfairly maligned, had Kevin Pietersen in a terrible muddle from round the wicket in mid-afternoon. A ball which bounced and turned beat him all ends up, hit him on the pad but was missing leg.
Memory of the day
After hours of turgid pit-a-pat, Chris Woakes came to the wicket for his maiden Test innings, batting rather high at No 6 in place of the dropped Jonny Bairstow, and drove his first ball magisterially for four.
Moment of the day
Pietersen received a memento for becoming England’s leading aggregate run-scorer, though when Jimmy Anderson became the leading bowler he insisted on a low-key private ceremony.
