They probably shouldn’t be, but ultimately all England Test captains are eventually judged on their Ashes records. The retrospective conversation, and God knows cricket is infatuated with picking over the past, tends to airbrush extraneous world events and pin its weighted history on these series alone. In the curious and present day case of Joe Root though, his Ashes lineage doesn’t tend to feel so much a captaincy record to be judged by at all, but more a sequence of events that act as a coming of age film we have simply witnessed.
