5. Joe Root:
Tried and tested in difficult English conditions, Joe Root has steadily built himself as the strongest pillar in the English middle order. He might just be slightly underrated due to his batting style, but is mighty effective. He possesses a beautiful hand-eye coordination and very few players in the world can play the ball as late as this Englishman. He has been a continuous performer for the England team and went on to score 1385 runs in 26 innings, getting better of his skipper by 21 runs. Batting at no.5 has made him adept at batting with the tail and to escalate the run rate if required. Also, he has safe hands in the slips and can roll his arms to bowl a few offies, thus making him a complete package, right at the heart of the English batting line up.
